Greatest players in Green Bay Packers history: 37. Greg Jennings

Wide receiver Greg Jennings’ NFL career began in the twilight of the Brett Favre era in Green Bay. He was taken in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of his hometown Western Michigan. Jennings would play in the league for 10 years, but easily his best seasons would come in Packers uniform.

In 2008, Jennings would rattle off his first of three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons. In 2010, Jennings would make his first trip to the Pro Bowl. That would be the same season that Green Bay beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. Jennings would follow up that stellar 2010 campaign with his second trip to the Pro Bowl in his Packers career.

2012 would prove to be Jennings’ last year with Green Bay. He missed half of it due to a groin injury. Jennings would go on to sign a five-year deal with the division rival Minnesota Vikings in 2013 free agency. However, he only played two seasons in the Twin Cities before being released. Jennings played what was his final NFL season in 2015 as a member of the Miami Dolphins.

Overall, Jennings had 425 receptions for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns in his seven years with the Packers. Jennings made two trips to the Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl with Green Bay in 2010. While he’s never going to earn Canton enshrinement, his football career continues to this day, albeit in a new vein. Jennings works for FOX Sports covering the NFL.
