Greg Jennings says this could be his final season in Green Bay
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings isn’t sure if he’ll be re-signed after this season and is preparing as if this will be his last with the Packers.
“Jennings said Monday he is not aware of any breakthroughs in whatever talks his agent, Eugene Parker, has had with the Packers and so there won’t be a deal that buys out the risk a pending free agent like Jennings faces in trying to reach the finish line.
“He is preparing mentally as though this is his last year with the Packers,” wrote Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“Whether the contract comes with Green Bay in the near future or (with) one of the other 31 teams, that’s the reality of it,” Jennings said. “That’s the way I have to approach it. My mind-set is 20 weeks of football with the Packers and then this is it.
“This is my last year with the Packers under contract. That’s my mind-set. I’m not thinking about (the) contract. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, I have to make sure I go out there and do what I’ve been doing for six solid years here to get myself a chance to play somewhere.”
The 28 year-old Jennings has plenty left in the tank and I would think they Packers will do what they can to get him re-signed. But then again, the Packers have a load of talent at the receiver position and if they have other players that they need to take care of, they could decide to let him walk.
