Greg Jennings just announced his retirement via a YouTube video.
To a certain degree, you could say the decision was made for Jennings. Two offseasons in a row, Jennings has been released by the team he played the previous season with. Jennings was most recently cut by the Miami Dolphins. He’s been unemployed since.
During his lone season in Miami, Jennings caught just 19 passes for 208 yards and one touchdown. That followed two lackluster seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.
Although Jennings had his best seasons with the Green Bay Packers, there were definitely some bad feelings when he left for Minnesota. Jennings seemed to have it out for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers organization. He later admitted that he was hurt when the Packers didn’t re-sign him.
Jennings caught 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns with the Packers. He was a Pro Bowler in 2010 and 2011.
