Eric He, our colleague over at Golden Gate Sports, makes a good point and slams to a close the door on any thoughts that soon-to-be former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings will end up in Oakland playing for the Raiders.
Any news about Jennings, one of the top five wide receiver free agents on the market, has been nearly nonexistent.
But in a recent interview with USA Today, Jennings was asked about what he was looking for in a team – and considering his answers, he would like to transplant everything that he had in Green Bay.
Here’s how Jennings answered:
”Coaching means a lot, the dynamic of the team. To me, the quarterback means a lot, if they have one or not, and I have to make sure my family is comfortable.”
He, who covers the Raiders through his fansided.com website, assures his readers that Jennings will not be headed to Oakland anytime soon. We’re sure there will be plenty of other teams that may fall into the same category, but some of the reasons He said Jennings wouldn’t be a Raider anytime soon were that the team didn’t have an established coach, there were no dynamics to the team, quarterbacking for the Raiders was questionable at best, and living in Oakland is, well, I’ll let He say it: “Oakland isn’t exactly the best place to live.”
Jennings obviously has some stringent guidelines and that’s a good thing. We want him in the best possible situation as he makes his move to a new team … we just don’t want him in Detroit, Chicago or Minnesota.
