Found May 24, 2012 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is the 56th best player in the NFL. Well, at least according to the NFL Network's "Top 100 Players" countdown.Jennings is the third Packer named to the list, with fellow wideout Jordy Nelson ranked at No. 80 and fullback John Kuhn at No. 92.After three consecutive 1,000-plus yard seasons from 2008 to 2010, Jennings fell just shy of that this past season with 949 yards.However, Jennings failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving because he missed the final three games of the regular season with a knee injury.Even with the missed games, Jennings still finished sixth in the NFL in receiving touchdowns with nine and 26th overall in receiving yards.The NFL Network series continues each Wednesday until No. 1 is announced, which Packers quarterback -- and NFL MVP -- Aaron Rodgers could very well be.Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
