The free agency market last season was dominated by the carrot of Peyton Manning, who had many suitors and then eventually decided to go to the Mile High Stadium in Denver. This season, the market is awash with quality wide receivers who may well test the market and engage with thes same suitors.  As well as Wes Welker (New England), Dwayne Bowe (Kansas City), Mike Wallace (Pittsburgh) there is the highly regarded Greg Jennings from the Green Bay Packers. Since saying he has not been offered a new contract, Jennings has been expected to go into free agency.  This is quite a statement of intent from the Packers who have lost Donald Driver to retirement; tight end Jermichael Finley's future is just as unsettled and has injury issues, now they may well let Jennings leave. Green Bay still have Jordy Nelson and the improved Randall Cobb, they themselves may well test the free agency market, although they have defensive issues to address firstly in the draft and off-season. So what's next for the 29-year-old receiver?  NFL.com's Ian Rapoport told "NFL Total Access" on Wednesday he would "be surprised if Jennings returned to Green Bay," based on talks he's had with people around the league. Rapoport mentioned the Minnesota Vikings as a possible landing spot. Beyond adding intrigue to the annual Vikings-Packers wars, the addition of Jennings would give quarterback Christian Ponder a serious threat across from Percy Harvin. Rapoport said: "In fact, one possibility for Jennings is going to (the Miami Dolphins) to play for his old (offensive cocordinator), Joe Philbin," Rapoport noted that Jennings recently staged an interview with a Miami radio station, and said, "Hey, Joe, Remember me?" Jennings isn't likely to command a premier contract after struggling through this season with a host of injuries, but his productive track record will garner attention. The Dolphins need targets for Ryan Tannehill, and Jennings is a known commodity for Philbin.
