Ted Thompson says Greg Jennings' criticisms wouldn't prevent a reunion

The receiver publicly criticized the team upon his departure in 2013. When Greg Jennings left the Green Bay Packers in 2013 for the division rival Minnesota Vikings, he began to publicly disparage his former team, accusing them of "brainwashing" their players and taking jabs at quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Since received his release from the Vikings, the receiver has taken the high road, calling the Packers a "great organization" and stating a willingness to reconcile. For any reunion to occur, the Green Bay front office would have to get on board first. According to Robert Zizzo of the Green...

Thompson: 'We're not sensitive' about Jennings' comments

 Photo/ Ted Thompson wouldn’t rule out bringing Greg Jennings back after his derogatory comments about the team. PHOENIX – Ted Thompson wouldn’t speculate on whether his team might be interested in bringing back prodigal wide receiver Greg Jennings, but the Green Bay Packers general manager was willing to say this much: That Jennings’ out-of-character potshots at the organization after his free-agent departure to Minnesota wouldn’t impact the team’s decision to sign him – or any former player.Speaking at the annual NFL Meetings at the Arizona Biltmore hotel, Thompson chuckled...

2015 NFL Free Agent Rumors and Signings: Dolphins live updates Day 14

We continue to track the latest news and rumors around the Miami Dolphins free agency. The NFL owners meetings get underway this week in Phoenix, Arizona. Typically, not a lot of free agent signings happen during this week, but that does not mean there are not rumors, speculation, and player-team meetings. For the Miami Dolphins, that should include a visit with wide receiver Greg Jennings, who was already scheduled to be in Phoenix and will sit down with the team leadership sometime this week. We continue to track all of the rumors and signings for the Dolphins. Dolphins Signings: Matt...

Dolphins to meet with Greg Jennings

The Miami Dolphins will meet with wide receiver Greg Jennings, according to a report. The Miami Dolphins met with free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree last week, looking to add a veteran to a group of very young wide outs. No deal was struck between the club and Crabtree, however, and now it appears the Dolphins have another wide receiver target they will consider. Dolphins looking at adding WR depth...will talk with both Crabtree and @GregJennings — trey wingo (@wingoz) March 22, 2015 Greg Jennings spent the last two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings after seven seasons with...

Carolina Panthers Bring In Greg Jennings For A Visit

Well, what do you know. The Panthers are kicking the tires on a more established name in free agency. The Panthers have been quietly and methodically going about their business in free agency so far. Frankly, most of the guys they've signed during the first week and a half of free agency have mostly underachieved throughout their careers. With that being said, it is slightly surprising that they've decided to bring former Green Bay Packer and two-time pro bowler Greg Jennings in for a visit. Then again, the nine year veteran hasn't looked the same since he went four straight seasons with at...

Hall of Fame wide receiver James Lofton doesn't see Greg Jennings returning to Packers

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Greg Jennings has been making the media rounds this week, saying he would be open to returning to Green Bay. One of the greatest wide receivers in Packers history, though, doesn’t see that happening anytime soon. Jennings starred at wide receiver for Green Bay before signing a five-year, $45 million, free-agent deal with the Vikings in 2013. In interviews, he then was critical of the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers before eventually apologizing. Jennings, 31, was released last Saturday by the Vikings. Despite the interest he has expressed...

Greg Jennings says he would 'definitely reconcile' with Packers

The receiver played his first seven seasons in Green Bay. Greg Jennings spent the first seven years in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers, first as a deep threat for Brett Favre then later as a well-rounded, lead receiver with Aaron Rodgers at the helm. The Packers won Super Bowl XLV in part because of Jennings' clutch catches, including two touchdowns and a must-have third down conversion on the team's final possession. In most cases, a player with such a resume with Green Bay would be cherished. Of course, Jennings left the team after the 2012 season for the Minnesota Vikings and began a...

Greg Jennings says Vikings wanted to keep him prior to making deal for Mike Wallace

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Wide receiver Greg Jennings said Tuesday the Vikings had expressed an interest in retaining him before they acquired Mike Wallace. Wallace, a speedy wide receiver, was picked up last Friday from Miami. The next day, the Vikings released Jennings. “No. 1, I wanted to know if they wanted me to be a part of the organization,’’ Jennings said in an interview with Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “They said they did. They made the trade and here I am sitting and talking to you in a position of free agency.’’ Jennings had a salary-cap number...

Greg Jennings Says "Thank You" To The Vikings And Their Fans

On Saturday, we got the (still) surprising news. . .at least to me. . .that the Minnesota Vikings had chosen to part ways with wide receiver Greg Jennings after just two seasons. Jennings had been the team's leading receiver in each of the past two seasons, and though it was thought that he had been asked to restructure his contract, apparently the two sides could not come to an agreement. On Monday, Jennings sent out a message to fans of the team, which you can see below. The full text of the statement will follow: SKOL Nation, https://t.co/KzGmMaP8NI pic.twitter.com/v8nWV6J0r2 — Greg...

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Wide receiver Greg Jennings, released Saturday by the Vikings, released a statement Monday that said he and the Vikings parted "amicably.'' Jennings was let go after the Vikings had traded for wide receiver Mike Wallace on Friday.

It was an honor to play for such a great franchise for the past two seasons. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the team and...
