Greg Jennings may not get the money he’s looking for in free agency

According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings may not get the kind of money he’s looking for once he becomes a free agent this offseason.

Greg Jennings is a really fine wide receiver, but he may be in for a little bit of a rude awakening on the free agent market. According to a couple of front office men I spoke with, teams might not be throwing fistfuls of cash at this two-time Pro Bowler. Why not? A couple of reasons. First, they believe Jennings won’t produce as much without Aaron Rodgers throwing to him, and without Mike McCarthy drawing up plays for him. And secondly, he is 29 years old. Jennings would have been much better positioned to make a killing if he became free after his first contract. Teams are hesitant to pay big for other team’s wide receivers in their third contracts.

I understand why teams might be hesitant to pay Jennings, but all it takes is one team that’s will to overpay for a player that’s been as productive as him.   I got a feeling there will be one team willing to break the bank to acquire him.

    I think Jennings made Rodgers look good as much as Rodgers made him look good. No one has better hands than Jennings!!!!! The Packers should do whatever they can to keep him.

    I think you are way far off and you really don’t know to much about the Packers. Rodgers had a great year statistically without Jennings over half the year and Nelson missed a bunch of games to and look at the numbers he put up, so clam up!
