  NFL | Greg Jennings retires    Mon Jul 25, 09:59 AM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Dolphins) announced his retirement Monday, July 25.

Footballguys view: Best remembered for his time with the Packers, Jennings finishes his career with 572 catches for 8,298 yards and 64 TDs. Fantasy owners remember him most fondly for two top-5 seasons (2008, 2010). We'll see if the Packers end up with a spot for Jennings in the team's Hall of Fame.

  Vikings | Minnesota may not pursue Greg Jennings     Mon Jun 13, 03:18 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Dolphins) reiterated his interest in re-joining the Minnesota Vikings Monday, June 13, and has contacted general manager Rick Spielman. There has been no indication yet if the Vikings are interested in signing him, however.

Footballguys view: The Vikings may just move on without him. They seem to be set at the WR position, especially after selecting WR Laquon Treadwell in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. Jennings has left Spielman voicemails expressing a desire to return, but we don't see the team falling all over themselves to sign the veteran. The market has been stone cold for Jennings since the Dolphins released him.

  Vikings | Greg Jennings wants to go to Vikes    Wed Apr 6, 01:46 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Dolphins) wants to sign with the Minnesota Vikings this offseason.

Footballguys view: Jennings could go back to the Vikings where he was a WR4 for his fantasy owners for a few years. He posted a poor 19-208-1 line last year for the Dolphins as a part-time player in 16 games. Even if he does return (and with Mike Wallace moving on to the Ravens), we're not expecting much from the veteran at this point in his career.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings released    Sat Mar 5, 07:12 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings was released Saturday, March 5.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins save $4 million with this move. Jennings barely saw the field last year for the Dolphins, and he was a non-factor when he did play. The veteran receiver may struggle to find a new home in 2016, and he's certainly unlikely to be a fantasy factor no matter where he lands.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings unlikely to return    Thu Feb 4, 11:18 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings is unlikely to return to the Dolphins in 2016.

Footballguys view: Jennings was a non-factor this past season, so this is no surprise.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings, Rishard Matthews silent    Sun Oct 4, 09:11 PM

Miami Dolphins WRs Greg Jennings and Rishard Matthews did little in Week 4 against the New York Jets in London. Jennings had three receptions for just 15 yards on seven targets, while Matthews hauled in just one ball for 16 yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Matthews had an appearance of some consistent value after Weeks 2 and 3, but like the rest of the Dolphins players not named Landry, he can't be trusted in your lineup.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings sits    Thu Aug 6, 08:33 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings has the day off from practice Thursday, Aug. 6.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings may not start    Sat Jul 11, 10:25 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings may not be one of the team's top three receivers this season if WR DeVante Parker (foot) is healthy and WR Kenny Stills outperforms him. Jennings will be able to win one of the top three jobs if he performs well during training camp.

  Dolphins | QB impressed with Greg Jennings     Sat Jul 11, 09:09 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings has impressed QB Ryan Tannehill with his route running. 'It's unbelievable how he can break corners down, with his savviness of how to get guys leaning,' Tannehill said. Head coach Joe Philbin also noted Jennings 'has been a quarterback-friendly type of receiver through his career. He catches the ball with his hands very well. ... He's a good route runner, crisp. He knows how to come in and out of his breaks well.'

Footballguys view: Jennings will be excellent role model for Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker, with Jarvis Landry already providing the same kind of security via routes and ball skills that Jennings does. Jennings could be as high as #2 in the pecking order to begin the season, but will probably fade as the season progresses. He's only relevant in very deep leagues, but should help the Miami offense more than he helps fantasy teams.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings signs with Miami    Wed Apr 22, 06:10 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) signed an undisclosed deal with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, April 22.

Footballguys view: Jennings should get the second-most amount of snaps after Kenny Stills outside, assuming Jarvis Landry remains primarily a slot receiver. It's not a bad destination considering how much harder it will be for a wide receiver to get work after the draft.

  Ravens | Interest in Greg Jennings     Sat Apr 18, 02:47 AM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) has drawn interest from the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jennings continues to get some more interest on the open market. He's taking his time in choosing his next stop because more than a few teams want him. The Ravens are looking for more talent at wide receiver since losing Torrey Smith (49ers) in free agency.

  Saints | Greg Jennings leaves NO    Fri Apr 17, 12:41 PM

Footballguys view: We think the Miami Dolphins might show some interest in Jennings as well. He's a seasoned veteran who is getting more than a few teams interested. Jennings will take his time and find the right deal (and the right fit) in the near future.

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, April 13, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Jennings is making a few stops before he decides on where to play in 2015. The Jaguars could certainly use him, but we think he ends up with the Dolphins.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings leaves MIA without deal    Tue Apr 7, 09:16 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, April 7, without a contract. However, the door is reportedly open for a deal down the road.

Footballguys view: There's no rush to add Jennings at this time. The Dolphins might be the favorite to land the veteran receiver. They could use his experience behind young receivers Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. Jennings also has years of experience working under Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin from their time together with the Packers.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings visiting Miami    Tue Apr 7, 01:30 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) is visiting the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, April 7.

Footballguys view: Jennings to the Dolphins just seems like something that's going to happen eventually. He could reunite with former Packers OC (and current Dolphins head coach) Joe Philbin, and Jennings would give the team veteran depth as the WR3 behind Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills.

  Dolphins | Greg Jennings still an option for MIA    Mon Apr 6, 01:25 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) is still a player the Miami Dolphins are open to sign this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins are likely to select a wide receiver at some point in the 2015 NFL draft. Jennings might be considered some sort of emergency plan at the position as he's a solid veteran talent.

  Panthers | Greg Jennings not coming to Carolina    Tue Mar 31, 10:18 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) visited the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 31, and he tweeted he has a deal done. However, a source is reporting that the deal is not with the Panthers.

  Panthers | Greg Jennings signs with Carolina    Tue Mar 31, 06:59 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 31. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: The Panthers need help at the wide receiver position opposite Kelvin Benjamin. Jennings still has something left in the tank, and he'll provide Cam Newton with a reliable veteran presence.

  Jaguars | Greg Jennings to Jacksonville?    Mon Mar 23, 11:56 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) is a player the Jacksonville Jaguars have an interest, general manager David Caldwell said Monday, March 23. However, the two sides have not scheduled a visit yet.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars could use some help at the wide receiver position. Jennings has gotten a bit of interest on the open market, and we should see him decide on where to sign in the near future. If added by the Jaguars, Jennings could take over the role vacated by Cecil Shorts (Texans).

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings and the Miami Dolphins will discuss a deal if the two meet for an already planned visit.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins are looking for wide receiver help after moving Mike Wallace. Jennings makes a lot of sense as he'd give them a reliable target for Ryan Tannehill, and Jennings would give them veteran depth at the position.

  Panthers | CAR interested in Greg Jennings    Sun Mar 22, 02:58 AM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) has drawn interest from the Carolina Panthers. Jennings visited the team on Saturday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Jennings would give the team valuable veteran depth at the position. The Panthers could plug him into the lineup as a slot receiver or a starter on the outside opposite Kelvin Benjamin.

  Packers | Greg Jennings not expected back with GB    Fri Mar 20, 07:51 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) likely will not sign with the Green Bay Packers this offseason unless he is willing to accept the No. 4 wide receiver job, in the opinion of Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Footballguys view: Nah, Jennings has more left in the tank than some WR4 on his old team. We think the Panthers could end up nabbing the veteran receiver.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings has been released Saturday, March 14.

  Vikings | Greg Jennings restructuring contract?    Sat Feb 14, 10:06 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings carries an $11 million cap number for 2015, and Chip Scoggins of the Minnesota Star Tribune believes he will be asked to restructure.

Footballguys view: Jennings just isn't the same player he used to be. His cap number is way too high for his current skill set and ability. There's little question the Vikings will ask the veteran receiver to restructure.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ribs) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

  Vikings | Greg Jennings suffers injury    Sun Nov 16, 03:33 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) suffered a rib injury in the team's Week 11 game but will be able to return to the game.

Footballguys view: Jennings still did very little, and Charles Johnson appeared to take over as Teddy Bridgewater's top target the rest of the way. The real bottom line is that if the Vikings can't have a good passing day against the Bears, it might be time to abandon them when looking for options for the rest of the year, even in deeper leagues.

  Vikings | Jerome Simpson likely not in line to start    Wed Jun 11, 10:15 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson, who took a pay cut to remain with the team after some off-field issues, is likely not in line to start with leading returning WR Greg Jennings and WR Cordarrelle Patterson in the mix. Still, Simpson is happy to be back, and he had a good relationship with head coach Mike Zimmer when the two were both in the Cincinnati Bengals organization together.

Footballguys view: Given the talent in front of him, as well as a potentially increased role for tight end Kyle Rudolph, Simpson may not get many looks, and certainly not many consistent ones. Right now, he's not worth rostering.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings had 11 catches for 163 yards and a touchdown in Week 15.
