In seven NFL seasons, Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has primarily caught passes from Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre. Yes, Jennings has experienced the joys of stellar quarterback play. And as he told USA Today's Robert Klemko in a story published Sunday, a team's quarterback situation is one of his decision-making factors in free agency.



Greg Jennings said:
Coaching means a lot, the dynamic of the team. To me, the quarterback means a lot, if they have one or not, and I have to make sure my family is comfortable.

Which he has in Green Bay, yet his bags are packed and he's ready to go.
And how much money does a man really need to make his family comfortable, seriously?

I make pretty decent money, but no where near 7 figures and I support all my girls just fine. So to answer your question ... hellifiknow. Maybe he has a different definition of comfortable than I?

I'm at risk. I have a lot of risk here. I got my family to feed.'' Sprewell is due to make $14.6 million this year. Sprewell, 34, described the team's latest offer, reported to be worth between $27 million and $30 million over three years, as ''insulting.''
Not that I think Greg is as bad as Sprewall is here but I guess they must feed their families gold nuggets or something.

Absolutely. No matter what he says it is about the money.

Pro players have this distorted idea if they don't get every nickle that is sitting on the table they are some how being disrespected. That the only true measure of respect is in the form of monetary compensation.

They also feel that they have to not only take care of their immediate needs that they have to have enough money to take care of their kids to the 10th generation needs as well. They kind of forget that they became successful by busting their butt and working hard. For some reason they don't want their family to have to do the same.

Since the advocate of obscenely big money for payers, how many kids have followed their father's career path and became a successful professional player? Ken Griffey Jr, Barry Bonds? Are there others. And their dads were well paid but I don't think they were paid exorbitantly. I know CM3 is a 3rd gen NFL player (with cousins waiting int he wings) but his dad/uncle/grandfather didn't have break the bank deals.

Which is why I'd like to never have salaries made public.
