Greg Jennings shows off his acting chops

At a time when receivers like Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens hope that they can parlay posing and/or dancing into a post-football career in acting, one pass-catcher is showing them how it’s done.

By ditching the preening and getting actual acting experience.

Packers receiver Greg Jennings recently made a cameo on Criminal Minds, a show that appears on a network other than NBC.  He did a great job — likely far better than other guys who seem to think that, because the gig looks easy, it is.

  1. What, I thought the show’s producer was a Bears fan!? He had Tommie Harris on the show a couple of years ago!

  2. A netowork other than NBC? Oh please…are you really so censored that you can’t even mention another network? This is proof that PFT filters what it reports…it reports rumors but not the truth.

  3. Any chance the part was that of a deep-threat who disappears when the game is on the line, but catches tons of garbage yards when the game of out of reach? I bet he could nail that one.

  4. He is a good actor when he pretends to be a WR for the Greenbay Packers when he only shows up half the year. Kinda like Ryan Grant.

  5. I would think the 3rd best WR in the NFC North would be busy trying to get better at the job he gets payed millions for instead of working on his acting chops.

    Third best? Donald Driver and Jermichael Finley are great players, but I’d still rate Jennings higher.

  7. Well, look at what Driver is accomplishing at his age, and Driver is STILL arguably the better receiver!

    I KNOW you’re not trying to put Sidney Rice in front of him.. That would be stoopid.

  9. I’ll say it for you Florio – that other network is CBS, home of the best television programing on any network these days along with all the top rated shows like Criminal Minds.
    CBS Sportline also has a football blog too – over there “Comment Ratings” AND “Readers Comments” are both part of the blog – all the time.
    314 days and counting – still no word from Florio on his promise to return the “Comment Ratings” to PFT/CFT.
    Yet we get plenty of t-shirt ads, baseball stories and of course the blatant pimping of PFT gear and Sprint on PFT.
    Tick…tick…tick… How much longer are you going to keep us waiting Florio?

  10. didnt rothlisberger do some acting, wasnt it a scene of him going into a bathroom to rape a girl,too bad that tape was erased[accidently of coarse],that would have been good footage to see

  11. Jennings is the real deal on and off of the field. Great Player, Great Family Man, Great Ambassador for the game.

  12. No doubt Bob Nelson and Jimmy Smith were in front of their TVs with a bottle Jurgens for that one.

  13. BernardPollard –
    Perhaps you should watch week 1 highlights from last year VS Chicago.

  14. Greg Jennings is one of the top 3 WR’s in the league. The great thing is he doesn’t behave badly like an NFL WR.
    He is a good guy and a great teammate. How refreshing to have a star WR that isn’t a jerk!!
    Now he is opening doors to other opportunities the right way.
    Decades from now, when today’s criminal WR’s are long forgotten, Greg Jennings will be affectionately remembered.

  15. here’s my JimmySmith/Bo0bNelson impression for the day (only with a twist):
    “Fitting having a Green Bay player on ‘Criminal Minds’. I’m sure they called Johnny Jolly or Spencer Havner but they were probably really busy this offseason. On second thought, I suppose they could’ve called Mark Chmura, I’m sure he’s not doing anything these days…”

    Jesus!
    You can just about see the semen running down Bob’s computer screen, can’t you?
    I’m sure this post was typed one handed.

    “I KNOW you’re not trying to put Sidney Rice in front of him.. That would be stoopid.”
    Well, let’s see…
    Greg Jennings: 68 catches, 1,113 yards, 4 tds
    Sidney Rice: 83 catches, 1,312 yards, 8 tds
    Calvin Johnson had a down year but he is clearly more talented than Jennings. Rice lacks elite speed but is clearly more talented than Jennings in pretty much every other aspect.

  18. Wow,
    Stat boy. Out statted by someone.
    Here comes the career numbers though.
    Nevermind that Rice was injured most of the prior year.

  19. Hey Florio,
    How come no comment about Nnamdi Asomugha’s cameo on Friday Night Lights? That’s an NBC show.

    Yeah just like you guys still affectionately remember Derek Mays and Desmond Howard

  21. Why the hell are you stupid Viking fans comparing Rice to Jennings? I mean, seriously. Rice is nowhere even close to being as good as Jennings, who has had more than one good year unlike Rice who clearly benefited from Lord Favre last season.
