    Summary of 32 articles · Updated Mar 18, 2013
    Including receiver Greg Jennings. You can add Greg Jennings' name to the list of former Green Bay Packers players who have moved on to the Minnesota Vikings. Sources familiar with negotiations said Greg Jennings had an offer averaging about $8 million from the Packers before he took a five-year contract from the Vikings that averaged about $9 million. So Jennings comes in with an average per year of $9.5 million, which he might have been able to top if he hadn’t insisted on seeing what the market would bear. Greg Jennings spent seven years getting the best of the Minnesota Vikings secondary while playing for their bitter rivals in Green Bay. All we can say is that Jennings is interested enough to make the trip and listen. And that’s why, with ESPN’s Adam Schefter reporting that Jennings will visit Winter Park on Thursday, the Vikings would be wise not to let him leave without a purple jersey and a rubber-stamped contract. Jennings, selected in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan, has grabbed 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns in the regular season, and 50 catches for 673 yards and six touchdowns in the postseason including four receptions for 64 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay's 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
