“I put Vincent Jackson last year up in the elite spectrum, a Pro Bowl-caliber player,” the scout said. “He’s also 6-5 and still can do a lot more things. Greg can’t compete with Vincent right now.”
Jennings seems to understand that the odds of him returning to Green Bay next season aren’t all that great.
“What would be the most difficult part?” said Jennings when asked what the hardest part of leaving Green Bay would be. “I don’t know if there’s a difficult part. Like I said, I’m excited for the future. Football is going to be football. I’m excited for that.”
He may not offer as much in terms of size and the ability to go up and get the ball like Jackson, but Jennings is one of the best route runners in the game and can still be force in the passing game. He’s dealt with injuries in recent years, so that should be factored into a team’s decision as to whether or not they’re going to make him a serious offer.
The Vikings and Dolphins have been mentioned as speculative options for Jennings, but Miami seems to be focused on ensuring that the players they sign have a limited impact in terms of their salary cap.
