Greg Jennings visiting the Vikings

APFree agent receiver Greg Jennings may be leaving Green Bay but staying in the NFC North.

Jennings is visiting the Vikings today, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

The Vikings have been widely reported to be interested in Jennings, especially after they traded away Percy Harvin and needed to pick up a playmaker in their passing game. Jennings would add an element to Minnesota’s offense that’s currently missing. The Vikings know first-hand how good Jennings can be; his best game last year was an eight-catch, 120-yard, two-touchdown performance in Minnesota.

The 29-year-old Jennings had a disappointing, injury-plagued season in 2012, but he’s still a difference maker, and he’s the top unrestricted free agent who’s still available on our Free Agent Hot 100.

If they can sign him for less then 7 million a year, with not much for guaranteed money, then I am all for it. If they mortgage the farm for a has been, that is injury prone, then they are insane.

As a Packer fan I can say I was glad he rejected the 10M offer tendered by the team... HE IS NO WHERE WORTH 10 MIL A YEAR! Way more pressing needs to spend that kind of money.

God Bless the Vikings if they want to pay him that! He is good... about 6 Mil a year good. He is not worth more than Welker. I'm sure Mr. Jennings is getting nervous now that the salary bar is being lowered each passing day and each signing after the Wallace signing... He turned down the Packers offer a couple weeks back stating he is seeking 11 Mil minimum... go gettum'! Bye Bye! We'll just keep building underneath. Maybe we can pawn Finnley off on you too...

Good Luck!

Far from a has been! He;s 29 for God's sake. And his injury was a torn muscle in his abdominal muscle. I wouldn't say he was injury prone. He still managed to play in 8 games last season and played to a high level... He played 13 games the year before and prior to that I can't remember any real injuries. He is a solid reciever with good hands and very rarely fumbles... in fact I can't remember the last time he fumbled....

With all that said, not worth the money he seeks.

Good Luck!

Personally, I'd like to see the Vikings sign him for about 6 mil per year, and not a penny more. If they could pull that one off, then use the 1st round pick they got for Harvin and go get Victor Cruz. That would be two incredible receivers to compliment AP. If Rudoulph perfroms and Wright lives up to the hype, that is one stacked offense. Use the draft to shore up the Defensive needs and the Vikings are contenders at once.

That would be nice in an unlimited money market, but we dont have the cap to do it. Cruz is looking for a payday, 13 million it sounds like. Isnt going to happen.

Ha... he'd still be a Packer if he was only look for that kind of money... I can't imagine he'd leave the Packers and their offer to make 4 mil a year less for the Vikes! I think he is trying to create leverage in a market in which he has none!

Good Luck!

Right on Labs, I don't see how people think a WR is going to come here and give the Vikes any sort of deal.

Jennings turned down 10 million a year from the Packers, he's not going to come here and let us sign him for 6-7 million to teach them a lesson lol.

It's gonna take us 10+ million to sign him, he's a solid player but not worth that money. He's also had recent hamstring, ab, and groin injuries.

If he wants to give us a deal I'd take him though.

What he wants and what he is worth are two different numbers. So far, the Packers are the ONLY team to offer him 10 mil a year and he hasn't snatched it up. Look at the FA so far. Wallace got the big 10 mil contract. Welker, Amendola only got 6 mil a year. Amendola has injury problems and if you go stats vs stats.....Welker walks all over Jennings, so with those numbers being out there, how can he keep thinking teams are going to pay him the 10 million. Sounds like the only two teams that are seriously interested in Jennings at this point are Green Bay and Minnesota. Packers have already put their number on the table and Jennings didn't take it. He is a mid depth receiver, not an all out over the top speedster like Wallace, so he aint getting 10 mil a year. Just a matter of when he realizes that and then where he wants to play. I bet the Packers watch this and offer him a lower paying contract.

Was the Packer offer still on the table? Did the amount come from within the Packer organization? Or just some media outlet? I trust about 1% of what gets posted from the media about free agents.

I heard Ruesse say something interesting on 1500 yesterday. It was that of all the teams that were paying a wide receiver over 8 or? 9 million a year last year,,,,,,not a single one of those teams made the playoffs.

I do not think that the Packers offered Jennings 10 million. I think that is what Jennings told the Packers that he wanted. I think the Packers have offered about 6 million a year but could be wrong about that.

He may not be worth 10 million to the packers, but its a little different in the vikings situation. Hes instantly our #1 WR without question. Is he Megatron? Larry Fitz? Absolutely not. Is he twice as good as ANYONE we have on roster? Without a doubt. Good hands, excellent route runner. Alot of the plays he burned the viking on were not 50yd bombs from Rodgers, all though there were a few of those two. Ponder specializes in SHORT to intermediate throws and Jennings can make plays on those type of patterns.

Plus- what do you think its worth to have a guy that knows all the ins and outs of the packers offense? Its worth something, just sayin... The guy is 29 yrs old and no more injury prone then percy. He aint washed up.

How would it be mortaging the farm? We owed antoine winfield 7.5 million this year and he was still producing. what do we owe antoine now? Jennings doesnt produce or make the offense better- cut him and your out the bonus money and maybe a cap hit depending on the contract.

I agree with Kellyp on this one, I think the 10 million was his demands, not an offer. Yigi, I would love to have Jennings on the Vikings, for under 7 million a year, otherwise he is more of a problem, then a cure.

And it doesnt matter if he is better then anything we have, you still cant over pay him just because he is better then what we have now. I am not to concerned about WR as much as you are. I am sure the FO will get the team a few decent targets, and hopefully not over pay to get them.

Jennings would have accepted a 10million dollar offer from the Pack. In a heartbeat.

No way the Pack offered him 10M...they could have franchised him for 10.5M. Smokescreen from Jennings and/or the Packers trying to make the Vikes spend more of their $$$$.

Good point if we could get him for around that 7.5 mill Winfield was gonna make I would swap those 2 players in a heartbeat at this point in their carreers. I would imagine he wants quite a bit of cash up front too though.

I hope we dont pay Megatron money for Jennings. Those big numbers are often leaked to the press by either the agent, the player, or even one of the teams in negotiations. If the pack realizes they are going to get outbid anyways why not spread a rumor of a big number and try to get a division rival to overpay for a player and burn up their salary cap. All these rumors help the player, the agent, and the team that is outbid. I hope they can get him for under 7 million. As far as the draft goes I say the third reciever taken in the draft will go to the vikes unless they move up or someone else does. The other two teams that are in reciever need before the vikes are the rams(16) and the steelers(17). Spielman has a tough job in building up a team with out breaking the bank. People on here often make the job sound easy. Last year spielman did a great job and the vikes made the playoff 3 of the last 5 years, but by this time next year people may be calling for his head.

I had heard in January the Packers had a 5.5-6 million dollar/yr offer on the table that was summarily rejected by Jennings. ESPN reports that offer was increased to 10 mil. The Packers woul dnever confirm that publicly while they are trying to sign him. The NFL reported his agent was negotiating with the Packers again yesterday, so there must have been something close to his asking price there. I can't imagine they would have been in negotiations yesterday if they were far apart. My guess is it did not go as he wanted... and thus the Vikings visit. He has said he wants the same pay as Vincent Jackson of the Bucs.

We'll have to wait and see what he eventually signs for. I would not put him as a mid-depth reciever. Definitely a #2 for premier teams and for most teams a #1. I put his skills above Wallace. Speed is not everything, ie: Troy Williamson.

Good Luck!

Last year we gave John Carlson $5 million. What a waste!

I know you don't build a team with high priced free agents, but if we can somehow get Jennings around $7 million, add a young stud with a 1st round pick, along with Jarius Wright and Simpson, I think we would have a much improved receiving core. With 6 picks in the first 4 rounds of the draft, I'll bet we pick up 2 receivers.

So basically your saying you want Jenkins, Aromashadu, and Simpson back? Thats what I get out of it.

Those are our latest "decent" targets that we tried to not "over pay" for.

Good luck with that, sounds like just as good a way to set the franchise back as many years as any big contract would.

There is probably a reason why Frasier can NEVER pronounce Aromashadu, Amorachadu, Amurashadu, Whatever it is correctly.

      I heard but haven't seen personally snow did NOT treat little pine nicely. Big pine had a huge cut out from road river, was staring as I was plowing cabins. I keep hoping the next two days this snow keeps settling and melting because next week when we hit -15 to -20 it'll be making ice quickly.    I'm off for Red Lake Reservation tomorrow (Friday) for a trout fishing trip Saturday. before people say anything let me answer your questions.  1. Season is open on Reservation all year long 2. We have a tribal guide so we can fish the Reservation  3. No we are aren't fishing lower red lake   We will be fishing for rainbows and brooke trout. I'm taking a group up from my church in frazee. should be a fun time.    Sunday if weather isn't bad I'm hoping to get out and we might make first trip out with ranger. Pretty excited to try it out.    Should have reports on Monday.

      1) Yes, mommy Slot fish are dead. But not many 17" are mommies yet.  2) Nets compile with slots limits?  That's the first I ever heard of that. Cool! 👍  🙄

      Finally made it up to Vermilion to ice fish. I saw numerous ATVs and snowmobiles running around out of McKinley Park so I took my snowmobile out. I found 9" of ice just outside the bay. The top 1" was white but the rest was good and dark. There was 3-5" of snow on the ice and there was a lot of slush. There were a couple of fish houses out by Birch Island. Fishing was very good but they were small except for the 20.5" eye in the picture. Couldn't shrink that fish enough to keep it. Taking the permanent out tomorrow for comfort. Good luck fishing and be cautious for ice conditions.

      Being able to witness gill netting sampling first hand via the DNR very few if any fish caught in the net are able to swim again and nets catch all sizes.  With that being said I'm not comparing this to the Red Lake band as I am ignorant on the topic and have zero idea how they harvest their fish.  I've also made previous posts on how lakes have acquired zebra mussels without ever being fished. Is the likelihood of invasion into Red Lake more likely from a sport angler? Of course, but without the exact knowledge of who it was and when we are just pointing fingers at others. Are there slob sport anglers? Yes there are but spending the majority of my adult life working on reservations across the state I can say that there are good and bad people in every ethnic group and one bad one overshadows ten good ones. I do hope for everyone who frequents the lake whether band members or sport anglers that it continues to be a great fishery. A PR pike from 2 years ago C&R on Red

      So a Mommy fish caught and eaten by an angler isn't really dead? You do understand that the Red Lake Band also has slot limits and open and closed seasons don't you?

      PJ Fleck's Gophers vs. Saban's Crimson Tide? Signs point to Minnesota bowl against the gold standard.   It looks like Minnesota remains pegged for the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day bowl in Tampa, Fla.   ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura saw the Crimson Tide’s fall to 12th, looked ahead and tweeted: “The rankings this week set up a strong possibility that 10-2 Baylor could wind up in the (‘New Year’s Six’ bowls, likely the Cotton) ahead of 10-2 Alabama. Auburn (then goes to the Citrus and Alabama to the Outback Bowl.”   CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm also has Baylor in the “New Year’s Six” top tier of bowls, as does Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, who slot:  Minnesota vs. Alabama.   How about that wild prospect? The Gophers might draw a dynastic Alabama program.   https://www.twincities.com/2019/12/03/gophers-fall-in-ranking-doesnt-alter-bowl-outlook-but-might-mean-alabama-matchup/
