The unrestricted free agent talked about preparing for life after the Green Bay Packers. Because the Packers have yet to even try to negotiate with Jennings, most believe they have no plans of trying to re-sign the former second round pick. Instead, Jennings will most likely land with another team and should be one of the prized free agents this off-season. Jennings seems to understand that the Packers will not re-sign him and has already listed his Wisconsin home for sale. Jennings told ESPN that while he knows not re-signing with the Packers is not a “done deal”, he put his Wisconsin house up for sale in order to be prepared. “I’m just making sure I’m preparing myself and putting my ducks in a row. I don’t want to be the naive one and believe I’m going to be in Green Bay because there is a chance that I’m not. So I’m doing the things I feel that I need to do for myself and my family as far preparing them for change, talking about change with my kids, making sure it doesn’t catch us by surprise.” Jennings was then asked if he was upset that the Packers had not tried to offer him an extension. “I think any athlete, any person, any player in my position would say that they feel like their team that they’ve been with and are loyal to should step up to the plate. But I understand the business part of it. I’m OK with it. I’ve worked to put myself in a position of free agency where I can still do OK for myself if it’s outside of Green Bay. “I’m embracing change if change comes about. Would I like to stay in Green Bay? Absolutely. They know that. They understand that. The fans understand that. The reality of it is when you become a free agent, there are other options out there. So I’m embracing the opportunity to have those options.” With the need to negotiate new deals or extend players such as Aaron Rodgers, B.J. Raji, Clay Matthews and A.J. Hawk, it is very unlikely that Jennings lands back in Green Bay. He seems to understand this more than anyone as he has already put his house up for sale. Jennings is certainly a number one wide receiver and will score a big contract somewhere to be a teams number one option. The only question is where?
