The Minnesota Vikings are trying to strengthen their wide receiver depth for quarterback Christian Ponder or Matt Cassel. They traded Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks, their best wide receiver but also one of their biggest locker room head aches at the same time.
So, they’ve been kicking the tires on Greg Jennings, who is approaching 30 and coming off an injury plagued season. The hold up is most likely money. Jennings reportedly wants $10 million annually, and so far everyone seems reluctant to give him that.
But as the Packers are negotiating with Jennings, he has been entertaining offers from divisional foe, the Minnesota Vikings. And according to ESPN’s John Clayton, things are going well.
“Things are going well for the Vikings and Greg Jennings, but the Packers are still in the mix to re-sign him,” Clayton tweeted.
It could be strictly as a ploy by the Jennings to force Green Bay to give into this demands, or he could seriously be considering it. He wouldn’t be the first Packer to make the journey to Minnesota.
But the Packers would be forced to make moves, like cutting Jermichael Finley to give Jennings what he wants. As long as the Packers offer is similar to the Vikings you’d think he’d stay in Green Bay.
