So now i have to ask this what happens if Ted Thompson lets Jennings walk will he still get the praise for not over paying players or will you be pissed?



Pissed.

Losing Greg Jennings would be the last straw in my opinion to what has been a very up and down career as GM of the Packers for Ted Thompson.

Personally I think if he doesn't pay Greg Jennings then he needs to go. That simple in my opinion because it would show a stubborn man who refuses to actually make an exception to his golden philosophy of football.

With that said I think he will pay Greg Jennings and I disagree with that scout. Greg Jennings is special because he's just as much of a threat deep at he is short and that's rare in the NFL. I'm sorry, but you don't get that often and I think Thompson knows that. I think Jennings will make slightly more than Lee Evans.

I was planning on saying the same thing as porky. I'm behind ted, but if he lets jennings walk, that might be the straw that breaks the camels back.

Sanders got fired because he was too rigid in his football philosophy. I hope Ted can see the lesson in that. And he's smart, so i think he can see that. but, if he doesn't sign jennings, i'll be very very very upset. pissed, you might say.

I'm fine with Ted Thompson drafting wideouts each year to fill the 2, 3, and 4 spots in the lineup, but number 1 wide receivers are worth their weight in gold. This isn't like investing in a running back who will break down shortly after signing his contract. Top receivers will play in the league well into their 30s, so Jennings is well worth the investment. Our other young wideouts like Jones and Nelson are replaceable parts, but Jennings is top 10 at the position and should be paid accordingly.

A) Jennings is young and THE biggest threat we have on offense.

B) Ted Thompson cannot afford to let THE biggest threat we have on offense go.

C) Ted Thompson will sign THE biggest threat we have on offense.

He simply cannot afford to take the chance of losing productivity in the best area of the team. Passing offense. Any further backward steps and Ted Thompson will find the backward door.

He, along with Arod, Kampman, Woodson, are guys you sharpen pencils for. Ted Thompson knows his limits and has been proven to be generous with those he wants to keep around.

It would be dumb not to get Greg back. I don't care how hard it is. He is our top receiver and to not resign him would definately piss me off. He is a not only a great receiver but an outstanding YOUNG leader.
Hard to find now-n-days.
He has also already stated it is not about the money...I don't take Greg as one to say something and not mean it.

This is all based on assumption that Ted Thompson doesn't want to pay a WR. I don't think he's really had enough opportunity to establish a track record in that department. The JWalk situation was a huge Charlie Foxtrot. Tons more factors went into that trade, as we all know.

But I think it gets done. GJ has been an absolute gem since his first step onto the field, and his locker room presence is indisputable. We gotta lock him up.

What seems to be missing from this article, and I find it odd.

They seemed to forget that Ted re-inked Driver to a pretty sizable deal during his term.. kind of curtails the whole won't pay a WR. Granted not the same size of deal, but still a deal on a aging player with the needle on the career pointed more down than up.

Good catch. I read this and was thinking the same thing..."wait, isn't Donald Driver a Wide Receiver?"
