According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Minnesota Vikings receiver Michael Jennings has been released. The former first round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in 2004, Jenkins spent the past two seasons with the Vikings. Schefter writes: ‘Jenkins was due a $2.425 million roster bonus on March 16 after restructuring his deal before the 2012 season, a number that was prohibitive even with the Vikings unsettled, to put it mildly, at wide receiver at the moment. Jenkins had 40 catches for 449 yards and two touchdowns while playing every game and starting eight for the Vikings in 2012. It was his second year with the team after leaving the Falcons as a free agent in 2011.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
