Soon-to-be free agent receiver Greg Jennings has already put his home in Wisconsin up for sale, and he said this week that he’s preparing for a change in his career, which has so far been played entirely in Green Bay.
So what would that change mean? It could mean going to Miami, where he’d be reunited with Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, who previously was offensive coordinator of the Packers.
Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post reports that Jennings appeared on the Dolphins’ team-owned Internet show on Friday and talked about how much he’d love to play for Philbin again.
“Joe, how you doing. Remember me?” Jennings said. “He’s one of my favorite coaches. Obviously he jokes a lot, little subtle things here and there, but he’s a great coach to have. He was a great coach to play for. He’s one of those guys that you can have a relationship outside of football. As a player you admire a coach when he actually opens himself up like that.”
Jennings said his family understands that a move is likely coming.
“I’ve prepared my family for change,” he said. “Wherever I end up, if it’s outside of Green Bay, we’re ready to be great wherever we go.”
Going about 1,500 miles southeast could make a lot of sense.
