If midnight is when the spell breaks and Cinderella must rush home because her dress turns into the torn rags she wore earlier in the night, the carriage turns back into a pumpkin and the glorious horses into mice, then Greg Jennings might just turn back into a Green Bay Packer – at least that’s what Green Bay Press Gazette reporter Rob Demovsky has been told.
He tweeted about 30 minutes ago that a source told him if Jennings hasn’t signed by midnight tonight that he would be back with the Packers. It was also reported here.
The talk throughout the past couple of days is that the Packers were continuing to negotiate with Jennings who said himself in an interview with USA Today that the team he wanted to go to would have a good quarterback, good chemistry and would be a city where he could raise his children in comfort and safety.
I wrote a couple of hours ago that it sure sounded like Green Bay. Two other teams that are on the radar, the Chiefs and the Colts, would also be good fits, but with the Chiefs just re-signing Dwayne Bowe and the Colts not necessarily in need of an expensive veteran, it would seem that Green Bay, if they can afford him, would welcome Jennings back with open arms. What they will pay him will be interesting.
Anyway, let’s see what happens tonight.
