Receiver Greg Jennings said Monday the Green Bay Packers didn't make him an acceptable contract offer but he harbors no hard feelings toward his old team.

Jennings said he was looking for a fresh start, in part because of the Packers’ depth at receiver.

“I understand that they have a lot of talent … and they’re going to have to showcase that talent, and we all can’t be as successful as we want to be individually with so many guys around,” Jennings said.

“You want to have individual success, you want to have overall team success, but you want to feel like you’re a part of it, and it’s hard. It would be hard for me to sit here and say, man, I was in a great position, I could have thrived. And I believe this with all my heart, not one guy over there can really maximize their potential because of the depth we had.”


Way to take one for the team, Greg.

There is no "I" in team but there is a "Me".

So obviously it's all about the "Me" with Mr Jennings.

Well good luck with that in Minnesota where it's all about AP............

Can sort of understand where he is coming from - but IMO maybe the team is better off - we got some nice receivers and this will give us a bit of money to work on some positions we really need ...

I understand how it might be difficult to think you are contributing as much to the teams success when there are 3 or 4 other guys who are doing at least as much if not more than you are. While the vikings are no where as good as the Packers if they do improve Jennings will play a major role in that improvement. Putting loyalties aside for a minute, because for the most part we all know there is no loyalty in the NFL, I can totally understand why Jennings would rather be part of a team where he feels he can play a much bigger role in their success.

As Packers fans some of us may have a hard time time seeing this because it is the vikings and we HATE the vikings. We say things like "all GJ cares about is himself" or that "there is no I in team" but you have to remember that Jennings is going somewhere that, in his mind, he can be a bigger part of the team. A place where he can contribute more to the teams success. I suppose you could argue that being concerned with HIS contribution to the team's success is still an indication of a "me first" attitude but I don't think it does. Every player wants his team to succeed and they all want to be a part of it.

If I could say anything to Jennings it would be that I understand why you made the move but I am sorry I can not wish you luck. If it were ANY team except the vikings (or the cowboys) I could honestly say I wish him a continued successful career but with the vikings (or the cowboys) I will have to hope he stays 100% healthy and his career falls off the face of the Earth.

He's sure to get 2000 yards a year and 15 TDs tossed to him from Christian "The Rocket" Ponder

He is all about himself and his own achievements and who can blame him? The move to the Vikings is still questionable because he said he wanted a good quarterback. I don't think he truly understands just how much better Favre and Rodgers made him look on the field as well as the cast of wide receivers that surrounded him.

The one thing that will truly help him in Minnesota is the Adrian Peterson factor, which he had mentioned in another interview he did.

The way I see some Packers fans acting (via Twitter) is pretty unreal. Yeah, he went to a rival but a lot of them are acting like this is AS BIG as Favre going to the Vikings. I don't agree with that. The Vikings invested a lot of money in an "older" previously injured receiver. Some of these fans should look at what the Packers have instead of what the Vikings gained. I'd say we still have it good as fans of the Packers.

The offense worked without him last season.

Peterson is going to help Jennings? When was the last time an elite running back won the Superbowl?
