Free agent, Greg Jennings of the Green Bay Packers,  only played in a total of eight games during the 2012 season but there sure seems to be a ton of hype surrounding the potential free agent. In case you have not seen his commercials, Jennings is currently pimping out Old Spice and the NFL’s own ticket exchange website through television, but most importantly, he’s pimping his own brand out. That last fact is very important because Jennings will be a free agent at the end of this season and needs the rest of the world to know him because he will not be playing in Green Bay next year. With the depth that the Packers’ have at wide receiver, it doesn’t make sense for them to pay Jennings the money he will almost assuredly be asking for.… Read more

  • With his obvious pandering towards the Vikings Adrian Peterson and the record, it seems to me that Jennings was auditioning for a spot on their team. After all, isn't Minnesota the destination for all washed up Packers. See Favre, Longwell, et al.
  • Greg Jennings has been the most respectable, admirable professional athlete out there. As a big Packer fan, I am most thankful that there is a wonderful role model such as Greg Jennings in the organization. (There are others, of course). Greg Jennings is an all-time Packer great! We'll truly miss him if he leaves...cheer him on, wherever he lands, understand that he needs to get as big a payday as he can, and recognize that Green Bay probably can't meet the dollars necessary to resign him....but never make the mistake in thinking that Greg Jennings isn't loved, admired, highly valued, and revered by all true Packer fans!!! Because...HE IS GREAT!!! Any team he chooses to sign with will be blown out of the water by the high character, honor, integrity, great big smile and family values guy that he is...besides being a great, clutch. team first player/athlete!!! We love Greg Jennings!!
