Greg Jennings thrust himself onto the scene during his rookie year back in 2006 by catching Brett Favre’s 400th touchdown pass early in the season. One Super Bowl victory and two Pro Bowl appearances later, it’s safe to say that Greg Jennings has become a stalwart presence within the organization. Could that be set to change? With his contract set to expire at the end of this season, Jennings has his future in mind as he approaches what could very well be his final season in green and gold.From The Journal Sentinel Online:
“This is my last year with the Packers under contract. That’s my mind-set. I’m not thinking about (the) contract. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, I have to make sure I go out there and do what I’ve been doing for six solid years here to get myself a chance to play somewhere.”
“Whether the contract comes with Green Bay in the near future or (with) one of the other 31 teams, that’s the reality of it,” Jennings said. “That’s the way I have to approach it. My mind-set is 20 weeks of football with the Packers and then this is it.”
This could be it indeed. If they Packers and Jennings are unable to come to an agreement on a new deal, the Packers do have the option of using the franchise tag. However, with so many other players in line for a new deal (Clay Matthews III, B.J. Raji, Aaron Rodgers), someone may end up being the odd man out. Jennings has himself mentally prepared for whatever goes down.
