Greg Jennings may have left Green Bay for an in-division rival in the Minnesota Vikings and yes for the team that offered him the most money - five years, $47.5 million, $18 million guaranteed - but he went to the team that made him feel wanted the most. And yet on paper you can see why some people feel this is a selfish act to go for the money, as it is being reported he rejected a $8 million dollar offer from the Packers to return to Green Bay and even a $6 million offer from the New England Patriots reports Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel The Packers could have all but guaranteed Jennings' return by applying the one-year franchise tag worth $10.537 million. When the club didn't, Jennings became an unrestricted free agent Tuesday afternoon and appeared eager to find a new home. Therefore Jennings left behind the opportunity to continue working with Aaron Rodgers or pass up the chance to play with the star-studded offense in Boston with Tom Brady. Whilst you can see the logic behind Jennings' decision as this is his last major contract as a 29 year old - yet the contrast between the talent levels of the three teams mentioned is startling. Would you rather receive a pass from Brady and Rodgers or Christian Ponder and (possibly) Matt Cassel.
