ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Minnesota Vikings have reached an agreement with free agent WR Greg Jennings.

Greg Jennings reached agreement with...the Vikings.

Schefter adds that Jennings will receive a five-year deal from the Vikings.

There were a lot of reports regarding the Packers interest in retaining Jennings initially, but they showed very little interest in the idea of committing to him long-term in the months prior.

Trading Percy Harvin to the Seahawks left them in desperate need of a solid receiver and Jennings was the last player of this caliber still available on the market. He's one of the best-route runners in the league, so he should be able to provide some consistency for the Vikings and Christian Ponder.

As for the Packers, this means TE Jermichael Finely will be back for another season. They could also use another receiver and have had phenomenal success drafting them in the second-round, so it wouldn't be surprising to see them target another one this year.

We had him listed as the No. 1 player in our recently updated Top 50 Free Agents list.
