Greg Jennings Ditches Packers, Signs Deal With Vikings

Greg Jennings: Recapping Jennings’ Week 6 Fantasy Performance

That probably won’t be an issue with Jennings. “He’s as great player,” Ponder said of Jennings earlier this week. “He’s been doing great things in Green Bay, and he’d bring leadership to that position. Kind of a dynamic guy you can put in the slot and outside. I’ve always admired his work in Green Bay, and he seems like a great guy to have on a team.” Said coach Leslie Frazier: “We’re really excited about the fact that he brings high character. He’s a tremendous athlete.

When asked whether the Vikings have championship qualities, Jennings said: “One of the things that drew me to coming over here was the makeup of the team. When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed. There’s no ‘kind of’ to it. Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below.” “It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best,” Jennings continued. “And it’s like total brainwashing. And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position, and I was afforded this position.” Jennings, who played seven seasons in Green Bay before signing with the Vikings in the offseason, had criticized the leadership skills of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers last month.

The Packers offered him a reported $8 million per season — that, of course, was way down from the reported $12 million per season the team offered him before the 2012 season — but ultimately, Jennings accepted the Vikings contract offer of five years and $45 million . Which then led one Packers player to text CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman the following: “I don’t blame Greg at all, the player wrote at the time. I just think he made a mistake. He went from prime rib to Burger King.” Burger King? Man, those facilities must be really subpar, amiright? While the money was important, Jennings also was impressed by the Vikings’ pursuit of him. When you play the game at his level, you want to feel wanted and appreciated, he said. The Minnesota Vikings did that. They made me feel as though they wanted me and that I would be a perfect fit. Rome asked if the Packers didn’t appreciate him, and Jennings laughed.

Greg Jennings: Week 7 Fantasy Outlook

Hesaw a season-high 10 targets. Jennings was unable to break any big plays, and at one point he had an astonishing six yards on four catches. Things are going south quickly for the Vikings, and the Josh Freeman era appears to be on the horizon. Jennings’ value will be directly tied to the team’s third quarterback of the young season.

After an explosive Week 5 in London against the Steelers, Jennings will look for a rebound outing Monday night against a Giants secondary ripe for the picking. Jennings value will be tied to the likely announcement of Josh Freeman as the new starting quarterback. Should Freeman get the nod, Jennings value immediately shoots up into WR4 territory with upside. With the game coming Monday night however, it may be best to take a wait and see approach with the former Packer.
