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.
Joe Philbin is the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, but before that he was the offensive coordinator for the Packers. A job that allowed him to have a relationship with Jennings that might factor into Jennings wanting to come play in Miami. He had this to say while appearing on Dolphins’ radio/web show The Finsiders, via the Palm Beach Post.
“Joe, how you doing. Remember me?”, said Jennings when asked about his former coach.
I’ve prepared my family for change,” the two-time Pro-Bowler said. “Wherever I end up, if it’s outside of Green Bay, we’re ready to be great wherever we go.”
“He was a great coach to play for,” Jennings said. “He’s 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.”
With the Dolphins having up to $40 million in cap space, looks like Jennings to Miami is certainly a possibility.
BEST OF MAXIM
Packers WR Greg Jennings discussed his future while appearing on “The Finsiders” this week.
Jennings was pretty direct in regards to his interest in playing for the Dolphins and head coach Joe Philbin next season.
“Joe, how you doing. Remember me?” said Jennings.
He added that he has “a great relationship” with Philbin and even referred to him as “one of [his...
One of the positions the Miami Dolphins will attempt to upgrade this offseason is the wide receiver position. The Dolphins might end up having their choice of either Mike Wallace, Greg Jennings, or Dwayne Bowe. Any of the three would instantly become the Dolphins best wide receiver and all have Pro Bowl talent. If all 3 get to free agency without being signed by their own...
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...

Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has some tough decisions to make this offseason in regard to his free agent list. At least he got one no-brainer out of the way early.With one year still left on his contract, Ireland re-signed Pro Bowl linebacker Cameron Wake to an extension last May to the tune of nearly $50 million over four years.That paid off handsomely for Ireland...

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...

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...
