To those of us on the outside, the Dolphins and receiver Greg Jennings seem like an obvious match this offseason.
The Dolphins desperately need another top receiver, Jennings has three 1,000-yard seasons, two Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl ring on his resume, he will be a free agent in March, the Packers seem content to let him walk, and the Dolphins coach, Joe Philbin, was his offensive coordinator for five years.
Jennings joined The Finsiders, the Dolphins team-owned radio/web TV show, on Friday at the Super Bowl media center. He looked right at the camera and had a message for Philbin:
Joe, how you doing. Remember me? he said with a smile.
Jennings, who turns 30 in September, said he realizes it may be time to move on from Green Bay.
Ive prepared my family for change, he said. Wherever I end up, if its outside of Green Bay, were ready to be great wherever we go
Jennings said he and Philbin developed a great relationship during their time together in Green Bay, and he caught 46 touchdowns in Philbins five years.
Hes one of my favorite coaches, Jennings said. Obviously he jokes a lot, little subtle things here and there, but hes a great coach to have. He was a great coach to play for. Hes one of those guys that you can have a relationship outside of football. As a player you admire a coach when he actually opens himself up like that.

Greg Jennings is going to be a free agent and seems to have a clear interest in joining his former coach, Joe Philbin, in Miami.
Greg Jennings is preparing for free agency this off-season. The almost 30-year old wide receiver has spent his whole career in Green Bay but when news broke that he put his home up for sale, many are assuming his time is up with the Packers.
If it is, the time comes for Jennings to decide where he will want to play next. And at least one destination makes a lot of sense.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The temperature at Lambeau Field was a frigid 0 degrees Friday morning, with a wind chill of 20 below zero.

Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers reunited on a public stage for the first time since Favre retired following the 2010 NFL season.
The relationship between the two was an interesting one. Rodgers was selected in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers and expected to eventually replace an aging Favre. He sat on the bench for three seasons and finally thought he...
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver made an appearance on 95.7 the Game in San Francisco (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) and was asked why he decided to retire now.
“Today is the day I officially said I’m going to retire, but on Feb. 6, in front of our fans in Green Bay, that’s where I want to do it. I’m going to open up my retirement to the fans and give them...
In the years since Brett Favre moved on from Green Bay and eventually retired (with pit stops in New York and Minnesota), it’s been discovered that the relationship between the legendary quarterback and his successor, Aaron Rodgers, was bristly at best.
That’s surely why the NFL put the two former MVPs together to present the AP Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors...
No one expected these two guys to show up at the same place at the same time -- maybe ever -- but there they were, former Packers quarterback Brett Favre and the player who took his job five years ago, Aaron Rodgers.
Though the two never had a very warm relationship in their three seasons together with the Packers -- and certainly haven't had one since Favre retired, unretired...
Ten Lombardi-era Packers and their coach have been in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for years, but Canton is making room for an 11th, and likely final, Green Bay player from that era.

You may remember that Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers didn’t end well. There was that whole Aaron Rodgers is the guy-taking-your-job / don’t-let-the-door-hit-you-in-the-ass-on the-way-out / what-do-you-mean-you-aren’t-retiring thing. Saturday, the two former teammates were on stage to present the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award. They had banter before...
