Tom Pelissero of ESPN “heard” that Packers impending free agent WR Greg Jennings could be seeking a contract that would pay him as much as $14 million per year.
Lot of opinions here about what top receiver UFAs may command. Heard Greg Jennings wants $14M/year. Tough to see that happening.

While Jennings, 29, has been a great receiver for the Packers over the years, it’s doubtful that he’ll be able to secure anywhere near that kind of annual salary, even as an unrestricted free agent. Previous reports mentioned that Jennings could be in for a limited market.
For the sake of perspective, $14 million per year would leave Jennings as the No. 3 highest paid receiver behind only Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald.
Packers GM Ted Thompson told reporters that he would like to retain Jennings, but that could just be posturing on the part of Thompson, as the two sides haven’t had contact regarding an extension to this point.
