GREEN BAY, Wis. With Greg Jennings one month away from hitting unrestricted free agency, the market for the 29-year-old wide receiver will be heating up soon.
The closest comparison to help determine Jennings' value is wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who signed a five-year, 55 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last offseason. Jackson was 29 at the time and had similar career statistics through his first seven NFL seasons as Jennings.
The biggest issue that could prevent Jennings from topping or matching Jackson's pay day is a recent streak of injuries. When Jackson entered free agency, he was coming off a healthy season with 1,106 receiving yards. Jennings had a knee injury at the end of the 2011 season and a core muscle injury this past season that required surgery and kept him out for eight games. As a result, Jennings finished with a career-low 366 receiving yards.
With that in mind, here are the five teams most likely to land Jennings this offseason:

Young Brandon Bostick could be part of a two-headed monster at tight end in 2013
If the Green Bay Packers decide to part ways with tight end Jermichael Finley, the assumption is that GM Ted Thompson would either sign a replacement in free agency or draft one in April. But I’m not so sure about that. I think Finley’s successor, or should I say successors, might already be on the...
Aaron Rodgers appreciates Brett Favre's longevity. He wants to replicate that tenure while playing for the Green Bay Packers. Of course, that will require continued success at a high level and staying healthy. These are two things that don't come easy in the NFL.
According to Garrett Johnston of the Post-Gazette, Rodgers wants to play as long as Favre played...

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be 30 this coming December. After 8 years in the NFL, Rodgers will be entering the second half of his career soon and seems to be reflective on his past and his future. While talking to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Rodgers had this to say regarding his future [...]
The Green Bay Packers never stood a chance in signing free agent Greg Jennings and already told the seven-year veteran that they wouldn’t be among the teams pursuing him. Jordy Nelson, James Jones and the emergence of Randall Cobb have the Packers set for 2013, but why didn’t they at least shop Greg Jennings before the NFL trade deadline or at the start of the season?
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he’d like to be the starting quarterback through at least the 2020 season. “I've had eight great years there, the last five as a starter,” Rodgers told the Green Bay Press-Gazette from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. “Hopefully I can give them another eight-plus years of playing at a high level.”
There are potentially three game changing wide receivers that will be available in free agency in 2013. Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, and Dwayne Bowe are all game changers, and bring along some form of baggage.
According to one anonymous NFL scout though, Bowe’s baggage may be to much to ignore per NFL.com.
“I am scared to death of Dwayne Bowe,” one scout told SI.com’s Peter...

Despite a disappointing end to his 2012 season, Aaron Rodgers still tops the 2013 Fantasy PPR QB Rankings.
Even though the Super Bowl literally ended just days ago, the National Football League is a year-round sport and so is fantasy football. Therefore, despite the fact that the 2013 season is still a good eight months away, it is never too early to take a stab at ranking the...
