More ideas on Jennings
By Tim Kavanagh
The Green Bay Packers appear to be saying goodbye to veteran WR Greg Jennings this offseason, and that has generated significant speculation as to where he'll land. Many believe that the Miami Dolphins are a fit -- they need WRs this offseason (whether they re-up with Brian Hartline or not) and HC Joe Philbin worked with Jennings in Green Bay previously -- but they're not the only team in the mix.
"The Dolphins are desperate at wide receiver and have the cap room to get a deal done," ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter writes Thursday. "But there are other teams that need wide receiver help -- Buffalo, Detroit, Kansas City and San Diego among them. But the Dolphins would be as logical a fit as any."
Three of those clubs have new HCs in place this offseason, which typically includes significant roster churn, so that could provide these teams with the cap room to sign a player of Jennings' ilk. The issue for Jennings is that he's hitting the market with a strong group at the position -- Dwayne Bowe, Mike Wallace, Wes Welker and Danny Amendola are some others set to explore their value (if they're not tagged). But whether it's Miami or one of the others, it's pretty evident that we'll be seeing Jennings in a new uniform this fall.
