Greg Jennings

Recommended Posts

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...

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.

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

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."

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

Finley is an silly-me if he doesn't take a paycut. Look at the market for Jennings, not good. Finely is supposed to make 8.25mil this year, not going to even come close to that anywhere else. I'd rather have a sure handed jennings for 2-3 more years and pay him 6-7mil yr than a ball dropping diva like Finley. He's been a headcase since day one and his share of injuries. He cant run block at all and blames his drops on Rodgers for "no chemistry". The guy single handly lost the packers 2 or 3 games because of the drops.

One of the worst signings in recent years by the Pack... Finnley needs to go away! He has already publicly stated he will NOT accept a pay cut or restructure his contract.

Good Luck!

I think the Packers are paying very close attention to the mass departure of the Baltimore Ravens "key" players this year after signing Flacco to that huge contract.

Rodgers is up next....

Finely at $8 million would be one of the worst contracts in the NFL. He likely had more drops than receptions last season. He also had the most annoying first down celebration in the league. I realize him making a catch is a rare event and he probably thought it worthy of celebration but it just makes him look like a tool considering all of the plays he "should" have made.

I'm sure GB is trying to plan a head a little for the contract that Rodgers is certainly going to command. It doesn't look like Baltimore planned ahead as much as they should have and now they are losing guys right and left. Not sure how Baltimore is going to be able to compete next year, they may not even make the playoffs if they can't patch the holes being left behind. It wasn't like they were lights out last year during the regular season.

All this darn Baltimore talk lol, 2 championships 1 with Dilfer at the helm and a rocket or was it missile Ismail ring fitting ceremony and a Brian Billick and a Mount McKinnie and a Matt Birk and can we just do a fake ceremony for the vikes ? Back to G. Jennings, just sign him so maybe he can share what he's learned to Ponder via Rodgers.

UMMM its strictly about money at this point in Jennings career and rightfully so.

And I know this isn't exactly breaking news but the Packers have no worries at all at the WR position and Jennings won't be missed much to be truthfull.

      Jim Curlee  Absolutely everything you said about the SunMar is true for the Biolet. Experienced it all.

      Much of MN has been seeing strong storms every couple days over the last week but that hasn’t slowed out Leech Lake Walleye Guides from getting on the fish. Not a ton has changed since last week fishing Leech Lake out of Walker MN. However, we did notice a pattern change in the bait of choice. Both Lindy rigging and pulling cranks have changed a bit.   Much like last Week we are still focusing on Lindy rig fishing. The water temp has dropped back into the lower 70s which has the fish looking for leeches again and less likely to hit crawlers.   The humps of Walker bay have been producing numbers of Walleye but not the best for size. Most of our fish have been coming in the 10-17 feet of water.   One tip we did pick up on is using a pink hook for your leech rig. This set up has been out fishing others 3-1. Try to keep your boat in the .5-.7 mph range. This can be tough on the windy days but the new Ulterra has pulled its weight on the guide boat.   Our Walker MN Walleye guides are still pulling cranks with success.    #5 Rapalas in perch and Bleeding Copper flash have been good for us as of late. As you can see from the picture the perch are ripe for eating and the walleyes are chasing them. Target the 9-12 feet of water range and just about 2 mph has been a sweet spot for us. Like always the lake and the bite is the best when you have cloud cover or a breeze. This time of year the fish spook easily when the viability is good similar to calm and sunny days.   We do have a few openings left for August and September so give us a call to book your next trip or to stay up to date with our latest reports   Visit LeechLakeGuideService.com

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Congratulations on your retirement bfisherman11! I hope you enjoy every moment of it!
    • bfisherman11
      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      Thanks Jim. I value all opinions, because I really don't want to spend the cash on a subpar product that makes my life worse!
    • moderation
      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.
