We'll find out soon how much money he'll get. I don't think the market was as hot for him as he was hoping.

From all the reports is the Pack offered him 10 million. Could be truth could be smoke screen.

Jennings himself said he'd check out all options then weigh them out and make a decision.

I'd sign him if it's 6-7 million, but if your talking 11-12 million then I wouldn't. I'd rather get 2 players for 6-7 million then him.

If we are gonna spend 11-12 million I'd rather have Cruz coming into his prime for the next 5 yrs instead of Jennings on the back end of his career. Yeah it costs a 1st round pick but you'd dream to land a guy like Cruz with that pick.

Cruz would cost us the cash plus a first round draft pick. I think he will stay with the giants.

The Vikes threw pretty good $$$ at Garcon last year and missed out. They missed out on Boldin this year.

I don't see any way Jennings makes it out of the TC without a contract. I still say he'll sign for @ 4/35M. I don't really care what they pay him...it's not my $$$. They NEED to sign him to take the 1st step in rebuilding their WR core.

You can't trade Harvin and cut Winfield and not get anybody back in return...Jennings would be our #1 and a great veteran leader for the young WR's we all know are coming.

But if you were Jennings, who would you rather be throwing you the ball, Rodgers, or Ponder?

I just don't think the Packers can afford to offer him anything close that the Vikes can...maybe I'm wrong. IMO, it's all a smokescreen coming from GB.

They still have to pay Rodgers and Mathews next year and they already have 3 above average receivers on board...who'll they'll have to pay shortly as well.

The Pack needs to worry more about protecting Rodgers and getting better on defense...

I hope they get Jennings AND Cruz. Lord knows the WR corps needs the help.

Quote:
Free agent Greg Jennings is dining with Vikings brass on Thursday evening, including coach Leslie Frazier and GM Rick Spielman.

Even Jared Allen is in attendance as the Vikings "clearly (try) to make a strong impression," according to reporter Tom Pelissero. In other words, it's more than a tire kicking as the Vikes try to sell the market's top remaining wideout on Minnesota. A deal isn't expected Thursday night. Pelissero spoke with an NFL executive who "could see" Jennings bringing home a two- or three-year deal worth between $7-$8 million annually.

Amen...I dont want him to leave GB. At this stage in his career...why leave to play with a guy who can't throw? Well, MN did pick up Matt Cassel.....a guy who is better than Ponder IMO.

I read from a questionable source the Vikings are offering 3yr, 22 million. Seems about the appropriate number to lure him here. Not sure I would pay more then that though. We will see how it turns out.

I still think he is just using us for leverage though, but we will see.

You are more then likely correct here. But how much money does GB have to pay him??? I would think if GB really wanted him THAT bad they would have already signed him and not let it get to this point. I doubt they will match any vikings offer. Its just a matter of if another team jumps in and offers more

I am kinda wondering if visiting the Vikings would give bad blood between them? But it is just a business right?

HAHAHA, gotta love when the GM and coach bring the DE to dinner to try and get a WR to sign.

Ponder- "Hey guys are you going out for dinner tonight with Greg?"

Owner and Coach- "No, no, you just stay home tonight and don't watch any tv or read any reports."

Maybe they should have invited Mrs Ponder?

I think he is doing it to get his price up too. Jackson did it by visiting with GB to get his $$ number up when in reality wanted to go to Atlanta to begin with. From what I heard was GB offered him 10 mil, not sure if it was 1yr or 3. But that offer has been whipped off the table since free agency hit. I wouldnt pay anymore than what the vikings are so called offering him.

Not much of an update

Quote:
ESPN's John Clayton reports "things are going well" for the Vikings with their Greg Jennings visit, but that Green Bay remains in the mix to re-sign him.

Clayton's reports often consist of gut feelings these days, but it sounds like Jennings' dinner with top Vikings officials went well. The sides are expected to exchange numbers on Friday. If their bids are close to equal, it's hard to see Jennings leaving the Pack for the Vikes.

I'd have liked to have seen Fred Smoot, Moss and Mount McKinnie take Jennings under their wing back in the day lol. They wouldn't have been grazin steaks, they would've entered the back door to Sheiks. I think Jared Allen's cowboy hat and duds were the clincher last night, those born in Kalamazoo Michigan like Jennings love to ride rope and clean calf pens. He probably tried to line up Greg a turkey hunt here in a month.

Oh yes and Ponder, when is his wife due ? If that was a falacy then he should be way too busy to hook up with Jennings and Greg could respect that, Jennings text would read........"don't blame u bro".

Regarding Allen, and why he probably sat in on the meeting. Allen is a comedian, he is fun to be around, and is interesting to talk to. Allen gets out and does stuff in the public, without the media involved, he tries to be a regular person, and stay low key, and will do positive things without it having to be on tv, or in the papers. He will talk to you like you are a friend, and not act like he is better then you, like a lot of "pro players" do. This of course is just my opinion, on why he sat in with the talks.

From what I have heard/read.....if Green Bay brings back Jennings they are going to have to get rid of Finley or try to get him to sign for a pay cut. How do you think that will go over?

IF Green Bay offered Jennings $10M he never would have came to Mpls for a steak. wink

      My thought was like a 4 wheeler only with real wide tires on the back and skis on the front.  have enough power to pull single flip over with equipment. yet do about 10-15 mph.    
    • jigginjim
      i was wondering about a uv light, for fishing, to see float on surface.  I know you legally can't shine the light down the hole but.........
    • JBMasterAngler
      It’s not very good.

      Wanderer you know the lake I was on I am almost positive. It froze over in early November and people have been ice fishing it for a 3 weeks to a month now. Snow cover was about 6-7 inches and it’s a good thing it’s a short drag across the lake as this fat guy was huffing and puffing on the way back to the truck.   Be careful as the swans were thick and the have an open spot on the north side where the creek exits.

      Did well yesterday with similar presentation of wanderer. Super small tungsten jig with either waxies or small plastics. I would lift the jig above the fish half a foot and just hold it and watch the spring bobber. Ended with 9 crappies and a bluegill for two guys so a solid meal
    • Wanderer
      My best crappie yesterday came on a tungsten jig/wax worm dead sticking on a noodle rod.  I could just see the pressure on the rod tip.  Let the rod lay on the ice so my hand couldn’t even shake it the slightest.
    • Wanderer
      I think ice thickness right now is more dependent on snow cover.  When it fell compared to ice being made on a certain lake and how much.  20 below for a day won’t cure the thin ice/slush blues with 10 inches of snow on the lake.     Thanks for pics Nick!
    • tfin
      I didn't say your data was wrong.  I said it was incomplete.  Comparing the number of lbs taken and allotted in two different years without stating the lbs of total fish in the lake was a non point.  Wasn't trying to add a whole lot of new data but was referencing the fact that non natives have the right to use our land for any commercial business we se fit as mandated by our gov't but not allowing the natives to do the same with their own land and waters is hypocrisy.  We pollute waters with factory and farm runoff and destroy fisheries all over the US and my guess is that there are close to zero post on this site saying boo to that.  When do we decide to do something about that?  When the impact is noticed.  When did the Band start to manage the lake better?  When the impact was noticed.  Enough said on my account.
    • smurfy
      I just looked at them again, the second picture down. narrows facing east, now looks like the snow is wet...…..want like that yesterday!!!!
    • monstermoose78
      I was local be careful of some lakes but the lake I was on I found no less than 9 inches and up to 10 inches.
