Wide receiver Greg Jennings made the leap across the NFC North this offseason from the Green Bay Packers to the Minnesota Vikings.

Yet, Jennings cannot keep his mouth shut about the Packers.

Jennings has went on all offseason about Green Bay. He was at it again Wednesday as you can see via this quote obtained from PFT:

 “When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed,” Jennings told Paul Allen and Ben Leber of KFAN radio.  “There’s no ‘kind of’ to it.  Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below.  And so coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I’m like, ‘Wow, these are really great people.’

‘It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best,” Jennings said.  “And it’s like total brainwashing.  And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position.”

Wait, so it’s a bad thing the Packers tell their players they are the best? They try to make everyone believe they’re the best? That’s a negative?

Please.

Better yet, does this mean that isn’t happening in Minnesota?

Regardless, Jennings needs to stop worrying about his former team. Time for Jennings to put his head down and focus on being the No. 1 receiver in Minnesota. Jennings is a critical element to the progression of the franchise as he can and should take pressure off of running back Adrian Peterson.

Time for Jennings to get to football.

    Jennings had better knock it off or he’ll be experiencing “the Leslie Frazier Leap” right to the bench! The Vikings don’t brag,they just win…..or they don’t! Save the smack-talk for Sunday Greg!

    I had always been a Jennings fan and thought he was a good guy, but his recent behaviour makes me wonder about his maturity. Seems to me he’s really hurt the Packers didn’t resign him and he’s lashing out. It’s embarrassing. He better grow-up and focus on his new team.
