Saints Hosting WR Greg Jennings For A Visit

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent WR Greg Jennings will visit with the Saints in the coming days.

Jennings recently visited with the Jaguars and has previously met with the Dolphins and Panthers, so there is at least a respectable market developing for him.

We’re currently over a month into free agency, but Jennings is, arguably, the best receiver still available. On top of that, signing Jennings wouldn’t factor into a team’s compensatory picks next year, which is a clear benefit for NFL teams.

The Vikings released Jennings in a move that freed up $5 million in cap space shortly after the Mike Wallace trade was official.

Jennings, 31, appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and caught 59 receptions for 742 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 48 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
