The post-Jennings Packers
By Tim Kavanagh
Despite the fact that Greg Jennings has put his house up for sale -- interested buyers can get more information here -- it's not 100 percent certain that the Green Bay Packers won't re-sign him. It's just that it seems that this will be the case.
"I'm just making sure I'm preparing myself and putting my ducks in a row," the WR explained during an appearance on ESPN Friday. I don't want to be the naive one and believe I'm going to be in Green Bay because there is a chance that I'm not. So I'm doing the things I feel that I need to do for myself and my family as far preparing them for change, talking about change with my kids, making sure it doesn't catch us by surprise."
Jennings' appearance comes one day after veteran WR Donald Driver announced his retirement. Fortunately for the Packers, it looks like they'll be able to withstand the loss of both pass-catchers, per ESPN NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert:
Kevin SeifertThey've got a nice top trio
"With Driver and Jennings playing elsewhere in 2013, the Packers would still have a receiving corps that includes James Jones, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. When healthy, that's a pretty nice trio. But teams can't plan for immaculate health, and assuming Jennings leaves, the Packers will need to identify and develop depth behind them."
