While Mike Wallace was getting rich in Miami, Greg Jennings’ phone was strangely silent.
And that could lead him straight back to the Packers.
According to Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin, there’s a growing feeling Jennings could still return. He reports that the Packers offered a deal worth in the neighborhood of $10 million a year, and that there had been discussions between his agent and the team recently about a return.
Without the Dolphins to use as leverage, it became harder for the second-best target at the wide receiver position to get a deal any bigger.
While there had been reports about the Vikings showing interest, that never materialized Tuesday.
“I definitely have some destinations in mind and I’m going to keep them close to the vest,” Jennings said on ESPN’s NFL Live. “I’m just enjoying this opportunity to be in free agency. A lot of players don’t get to experience this opportunity, and I’m one that does. So I’m going to embrace the opportunity and take my visits when we get those taken care of and lined up and I’m excited about it.”
But unless the Vikings change their minds, or other receiver-needy suitors emerge, the Packers may still have a shot.
