Greg Jennings puts Wisconsin home on the market

Greg Jennings, Chris Cook AP

After the Packers lost to the 49ers in the playoffs, wide receiver Greg Jennings said that he was unsure whether he would be back with the team in 2013 and that he was “ready to move wherever” as a free agent.

The second half is feeling a bit more true than the first at the moment. Jennings could still return to the Packers, but he’s feeling confident enough that he’ll be moving “wherever” that he’s put his Wisconsin house on the market.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house in De Pere, Wisconsin is listed at $525,000 and comes with plenty of bells and whistles. There’s a putting green, a theater room and 4,788 square feet of living space in the home Jennings bought shortly after joining the Packers as a second-round pick in 2006.

Since then, Jennings has caught 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns, but there were increasing signs over the course of the season that his run in Green Bay has reached its end. Jennings struggled to get healthy after an early-season groin injury and the Packers offense showed that it could be plenty productive with Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jordy Nelson playing the lead roles in the passing game. Jennings said at one point during the season that he didn’t expect to be back and his real estate decision suggests nothing’s changed on that front.

  5. trollhammer20 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:17 AM

    This move will give them more cap space to spend on defense. Lord knows they need it.

  6. greej1938l says: Jan 29, 2013 9:19 AM

    your about 500,000$ too high for this fella

  7. indywilson40 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:19 AM

    Luck to Jennings sounds great.

  8. mburkett1980 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:23 AM

    One of the league’s worst kept secrets of the past couple of months – Greg Jennings will be a Miami Dolphin within the first 48 hours of free agency, book it.

  9. FinFan68 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:23 AM

    Just head down to Miami. I hear there are some docs down there that can fix him right up. No more nagging injuries that won’t go away. Just ask A-Rod.

  10. spellingcops says: Jan 29, 2013 9:24 AM

    Cmon, everyone knows he’s taking his talents to South Beach.

  11. scothawk says: Jan 29, 2013 9:24 AM

    Its either a leverage move to show the Packers he is serious about quitting or he knows his new contract isnt going to be large enough to keep up the payments.

  12. jwil007 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:24 AM

    Jennings,

    Whats the asking price to come to Cincy and help us get to a SB?? You know our defense finshed 7th we have 55 Million and 3 picks in the top 55..Call Mike and work something out..You and AJ Green would be sick at the Y and Z with Sanu in the slot…THink about it dawg! #Bengals!

  15. aaronitout says: Jan 29, 2013 9:36 AM

    Don’t discount the Chargers, Oakland, or NYJ. Greg Jennings is as interested in getting work on the television screen as he is in playing football. Any team that gets him closer to acting gigs will have an upperhand in signing him.

    He’s been talking about acting since he was on CSI *insert random city here* 5 years ago.

  16. ketchupaholic says: Jan 29, 2013 9:45 AM

    It will be Houston, Minnesota or New England. My Money is on Houston, even thought I’d like to see him in Purple & Gold. He won’t go to Minni after Green Bay.

  17. glac1 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:48 AM

    his new home better have rehab facilities… He spends a lot of time in there.

  18. coltzfan166 says: Jan 29, 2013 9:56 AM

    So Greg Jennings, Donal Driver, and Jermichael Finley are all out? Well I guess the Packers’ short-lived dynasty is over.

  19. kcflake says: Jan 29, 2013 9:58 AM

    Come on Down to Kansas City Mr. Jennings. We would Love to have you making catches for our Chiefs.

  20. rhamrhoddy says: Jan 29, 2013 9:58 AM

    I think the obvious follow up question is: Did he put his Old Spice Waverunner/Bikini Model workout gear up for sale too?

  21. tannethrill says: Jan 29, 2013 10:10 AM

    For the right price I’d like to have him but if the money is close I’m going with Bowe and the money would still need to be right.

    IMO that excess amount of cap space should be applied to the offensive and defensive lines. I boil it down to the fact that they can’t avoid contact.

    I’d love to see a breakdown of free agents by position over the last 10-15 years and which positions have the highest success rate based on the high end signings each of those years. My guess is the trenches is where money is well spent.

    This financial structure suggests you get as much young speed and athleticism at the skill positions in the draft and let most of them walk once their rookie deal expires.

  22. filthymcnasty1 says: Jan 29, 2013 10:12 AM

    It’s not surprising that Packer players are coveted around the league.

  23. blarry21 says: Jan 29, 2013 10:14 AM

    See ya Greg. You’ll be exposed next year when you have an inferior quarterback throwing you the ball. You’ve ridden Favre’s and Rodger’s coat tails too long

  24. dabearsk says: Jan 29, 2013 10:27 AM

    Buying in 2006…house is priced too high GJ…that’s ok..whatever haircut you take your next contract will more than make up for your loss..

  25. lambeauleaper says: Jan 29, 2013 10:35 AM

    What’s all the fuss? The guy just wants a bigger house in the Green Bay area…lol.

    Yeah, Haynesworth has been an absolute steal for the… South Beach Yacht club?

  27. jmikeh73 says: Jan 29, 2013 10:43 AM

    I feel kinda weird seeing pictures of where Greg Jennings takes a dump…

  28. ebr362 says: Jan 29, 2013 10:45 AM

    If you need a new place, call Reggie Bush, rumor has it his place is going up for sale……

  29. rpiotr01 says: Jan 29, 2013 10:47 AM

    He’s in for a rude awakening on the FA market this year, but he’ll land somewhere for nice money. He’s been nothing but a class act, a good performer on the field, a good family man, and has a very marketable personality.

    I hope he has good years left in him, but I fear he’ll decline quickly. He’s been injured the past two years. He’s had knee issues in the past, a few concussions, just nagging things here and there that may amplify as he gets older and takes more hits.

    Either way, it’s been a pleasure having him in GB, I’d like to think they’d try to keep him but if they can’t, good luck.

  30. retaeyssup says: Jan 29, 2013 10:48 AM

    Surprised no one has mentioned that he only lives in a $525,000 home. If it was up for five million everyone would talk smack about poor investment choices and how he makes too much money.

  31. htown1035 says: Jan 29, 2013 11:16 AM

    Come to Houston Greg – the same house will cost you half as much and there’s no state income tax!

  32. purpleguy says: Jan 29, 2013 11:28 AM

    I wonder about his fit with the Vikes if his most productive position is the slot where the Vikes already have Percy. The most intersting part of this article is thae amount of house you can buy out there in the boonies.

  33. wjmoffatt says: Jan 29, 2013 11:30 AM

    Is it possible for the Packers to franchise him, then trade him to the Jets for either Revis (with a draft pick(s)) or Cromartie, then let the Jets give him a deal?

  34. losraiders says: Jan 29, 2013 11:38 AM

    Reggie, bring him to Oakland!!!

  35. bmue42 says: Jan 29, 2013 11:41 AM

    He Seems like a new England type of guy

  36. beedubyatoo says: Jan 29, 2013 11:52 AM

    The only attrtaction in Houston is J. J. Watt and he’s from Wisconsin too. Along with Owens and Graham

  37. granadafan says: Jan 29, 2013 11:55 AM

    Wow, in any other real city, a house like that would go for over 1 million. That’s a huge house. Then again, given the size of their women, a 4700 sqaure foot house sounds a bit cramped.

  38. peopletrains says: Jan 29, 2013 11:56 AM

    Absolutely no way he winds up in Minnesota or Miami. He wants to win a Super Bowl.

  39. majikwen says: Jan 29, 2013 11:57 AM

    there will be some idiot team that will offer him the moon, bottom line he can’t stay health ………. james jones is more valuable because he PLAYS !!!!

  40. 8drinkminimum says: Jan 29, 2013 11:59 AM

    Plenty of foreclosures to choose from in south Florida.

  41. noringcircus says: Jan 29, 2013 12:01 PM

    Reggie likes to sign former GB players, so I would think the Raiders would be looking at Jennings. He would be instantly the #1 receiver with team’s current WR corp. Pull the trigger, Big Mac.

    Spend? Surely you jest – the Packers don’t spend in FA, they build through the draft. Expect your swiss cheese defense to continue until those draft prospects can develop in a few more years. In Ted Thompson you trust, right?

  43. sportsfan240 says: Jan 29, 2013 12:14 PM

    How do you know Wisconsin sucks? When you can get a house with those kind of amenities for $525,000.

  44. undraftedstar says: Jan 29, 2013 12:24 PM

    If your a GM would you rather have Jennings or Welker ?

  45. oldcracker says: Jan 29, 2013 12:28 PM

    Not a Cardinals fan but, I think he would line up real nice, opposite of Fitz!

  46. JackAcid says: Jan 29, 2013 12:38 PM

    What happened to this guy? During the Pack Super Bowl run, he seemed like a top 10 WR.

  47. hehateme2 says: Jan 29, 2013 12:45 PM

    Wow,… real estate is checp in WI. I think he’ll be sticker shocked for homes prices in S. Florida.

    But, on the upside there is no state tax and much nicer weather.

  48. hehateme2 says: Jan 29, 2013 12:49 PM

    Geez, these seahag fans are the WORST! Try to act like you’ve “been there before” for a change.

  49. billbrasky72 says: Jan 29, 2013 1:12 PM

    I’m a Vikings fan, and there is no way he is coming to MN next year. If you have been watching what Spielman has been doing, you’d know that. Jennings is too old. As evidenced by last year’s free agency period, Spielman won’t sign a receiver that is over about 26 year and only if he can get a bargain. He tried getting Garcon until the price got out of hand, and ended up settling on Simpson, again for a bargain price at the time. He’ll probably pick up one, or a couple younger, lesser known FA receivers, and draft a couple.

     –no matter what team you’re a fan of, they haven’t won as many games as the packers these past three years, as the packers have the most wins. heck, they’ve only lost by more than a toucdown TWICE! so, yah, we trust ted thompson.

  51. johnnyb216 says: Jan 29, 2013 1:16 PM

    That’s fine. Green bay already used up his best years. Better to get rid of him a year too early rather than a year too late. We were without him for most of the year and the offense still produced for the most part. Were going to need all that cash for Matthews and Rodgers anyways so dumping one of our bigger contracts isn’t a bad thing.

    It’s about this time every year that all the greatest free agents in the NFL make their way to Miami before flying to another city and signing with another team.

  54. boomboomyeah says: Jan 29, 2013 1:38 PM

    Love you Jennings and wishing you the best of luck. However, you will soon find out that the majority of your stats only happened because you had an elite qb to deliver the ball. Won’t find that many other places.

  55. purplepillager says: Jan 29, 2013 1:41 PM

    Jennings will be a Viking. The Vikings absolutely need a good-to-great receiver. He would provide insight on how to defend Green Bay’s passing offense. He said earlier this year that he preferred to play in domes. Also, this will allow the Vikings to draft a LB and FS in the early rounds of the 2013 draft.

  56. zane21 says: Jan 29, 2013 2:17 PM

    Will AR help you load up your U-Haul? : )

    Come to the Seahawks and have RW3 launch you the ball….our team is one big time WR away from NFC domination for years.

    COME TO SEATTLE!!!!

  57. larryboodry says: Jan 29, 2013 2:25 PM

    I’ll be glad to see him out of the NFC North, unless he finds a nice home in Chicago.

  58. larryboodry says: Jan 29, 2013 2:28 PM

    Then again, because of his GB background, I doubt he will sign with any of their division rivals.

    Longwell and Sharper too. Free agent means just that, they can sign freely wherever they so choose, including rivals.

  64. deltaoracle says: Jan 29, 2013 4:09 PM

    He’s really a quality guy, so I hope for his sake that he doesn’t end up in one of the circus zones. Or worst of all, East Dakota.

  65. vltrophy14 says: Jan 29, 2013 4:10 PM

    Where ever Jennings goes his future team won’t be as good & his new QB won’t be near as good as Rodgers. Granted he’ll make any team better but the team as a whole will not be as good as the Packers

  66. axespray says: Jan 29, 2013 7:02 PM

    Doubt he’d wanna play in Minnesota …. Dude wants to make good money – but he also cares about his stats … I’m thinking a place like Houston where he can get a lot of passes his way – while also playing for a contender …

    So a contending team with Cap Space – Decent QB – not much at receiver.

    Said it before, will say it again. Don`t think that a Queen`s fan, out of the 31 other team`s fans, has ever earned the right to comment on anything regarding the Packers. When your team even makes it to the Superbowl, then we can talk. Don`t think either one of us better hold our breath.
