Leslie Frazier had to endure Percy Harvin and his temperament for four years until the malcontent receiver forced his way out of Minnesota.
At the time of his departure the question was, “Who is going to take his place?” Now that former Green Bay Packer Greg Jennings is in the fold, Frazier is breathing a little easier.
The mild mannered coach likes the direction the team is headed after making the playoffs in 2012, and he’s convinced Jennings who have had two down years in a row due to injuries, will play a big part.
The eye in the sky doesn’t lie, and Frazier already knew what kind of player the Vikings were getting when they signed Jennings.
“We had a ton of tape to show that. A ton. A ton of tape. Greg’s a bright guy. He understands offense and he understands defenses, too. So once we showed him specific things, he realized there were some golden opportunities here.
Plus, Bill and George did a great job explaining that we would use him in a fashion where he could move around and not have coverages constantly rolled toward him. I think he liked what he heard,” Frazier said, via Dan Wiederer of the Star-Tribune.com.
