Jennings, 29, seemed like an obvious candidate to be playing elsewhere next season, as there hasn’t been any reported communication between the Packers and Jennings’ reps. Then again, it doesn’t require a meeting to franchise a player.
A recent report mentioned that Jennings could be targeting as much as $14 million annually in his next contract, which is a clear indication that he won’t be signing a long-term contract with Green Bay if maintains that target. The franchise tag would run them $10.36 million.
