An informal survey of all the experts over at nfl.com provides a snapshop of 17 of the biggest named free agents who will officially hit the market in about 30 minutes.
To my surprise, Charley Casserly and Gregg Rosenthal have come out saying that Jennings is likely to stay put and find a way to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers.
Surprising? Yes, to an extent.
But think about it. Jennings has come out and said the team he wants to go to must have a solid quarterback, high character in the locker room and the city must be a great place for his kids. It sure sounds like he’s describing the Packers and Green Bay.
Of the teams he’s been most linked to – the Miami Dolphins and the Minnesota Vikings – simply don’t have that full package. The Dolphins appear to be going hard after Mike Wallace and the Vikings – well, they simply don’t have the quarterback that would attract a receiver like Jennings. You’ve got think that Jennings is looking for a team with a QB who will at least be able to get the ball within the same zip code.
Maybe Casserly and Rosenthal know more than we know.
What do you think?
I guess we’ll know sooner than later.
