The speculation that Greg Jennings wouldn’t be returning to the Green Bay Packers started when the season ended for the team. It heated up when he put his Wisconsin-area home on the open market, and now it’s fully engulfed in flames – Jennings won’t be wearing Green and Yellow next season.
Appearing on NFL Network’s Total Access, Jennings all but said he was leaving, and gave an open option for the other 31 teams in the league.
Specifically mentioning the Miami Dolphins, where many have connected the dots, leading to a reunion with head coach Joe Philbin, his former offensive coordinator in Green Bay.
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Jennings said. “The weather’s definitely nice. They have an up and coming quarterback.”
Of course, free agency is still a month away, beginning on March 12th, he said he wouldn’t be ruling out any other options.
“It’s one of those situations … its a business,” He said, following with “All other 31 teams are an option.”
While he says that there are 31 other spots, he didn’t completely rule out re-signing with the Packers, although he sees the writing on the wall. The team has a slew of receivers, some that bloomed into star-playmakers this past season.
With the retirement of Donald Driver, the team is down a receiver, but with a deep depth chart full of starting-caliber wideouts his services are likely not going to be needed moving forward.
Many have him penciled in to join the ‘Fins in March, but anything can happen – he definitely didn’t count anyone out.
