According to an NFL scout that spoke with Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers WR Greg Jennings may have a ”much smaller” market for his services than Vincent Jackson had last year.
“I put Vincent Jackson last year up in the elite spectrum, a Pro Bowl-caliber player,” the scout said. “He’s also 6-5 and still can do a lot more things. Greg can’t compete with Vincent...
