We’ve heard plenty about potential targets for the Cleveland Browns in the last few days of free agency. But we hadn’t heard definitive interest in this WR star: Greg Jennings. Jennings, 29, missed the majority of the 2012 season with the Green Bay Packers. He missed the season’s first game with a suspension from an off-the-field incident, then had a concussion and hernia surgery later in the year. It has remained up in the air for months because of his age and durability whether he would he able to reach a deal with the only team he’s known in his 7-year career. NFL Net’s @rapsheet on Greg Jennings: “I hear the #Packers are still trying to negotiate with him.” Also mentioned #Vikings #Colts #Browns. — Evan Silva (@evansilva) March 11, 2013 The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, via Evan Silva of Rotoworld on Twitter, mentioned the Browns tonight as one of several teams potentially interested in the services of Jennings. The quote was that the “Packers are still trying to negotiate,” but then the Vikings (who just traded Percy Harvin) along with the Colts and Browns are other potential suitors. The Dolphins, of course, also have been listed several times previously. Along with Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace — who we have seen mentioned in plenty of Cleveland rumors — Jennings and New England’s Wes Welker are the other two “elite” wide receiver targets this offseason. Some secondary options include Danny Amendola, Danario Alexander, Donnie Avery, Domenik Hixon, Brandon Gibson, et al. Jennings — a second-round pick in 2006 out of Western Michigan — appeared in only 8 games in 2012, catching 36 balls for 366 yards and 4 touchdowns. It stands as the worst year of his career. His averages during the previous five seasons (thus, excluding his rookie year): 69 receptions, 1,108 yards and 8 touchdowns. [Related: NFL Free Agency Primer: Part 1- Wide Receivers]
