You knew it was coming after the Minnesota Vikings traded for Mike Wallace and today it became official as Greg Jennings, the former Green Bay Packer, was given his release.
Now the big question is whether or not Green Bay would be interested in having the two-time Pro Bowler return to the Packers on a reduced contract.
The move would makes sense. After all, Jennings flourished in Green Bay. He is one of the franchises all-time leading receivers and won a Super Bowl ring in 2010.
Things did not go so well for Jennings in Minnesota and the former second-round pick had two sub 1,000 yard seasons. Yet, if Jennings were to come back to Green Bay, next to Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, opposing defenses would have a lot of sleepless nights.
I don’t know if it will happen or not, but if the price is right it seems to make a lot of sense. Jennings left the Packers for money but he might be interested in leaving money on the table to win another championship, which sounds like a good deal for the Packers. Or at least one that’s worth giving serious consideration.
