Anyway, I'm a little surprised by the enthusiasm of this potential signing. I guess I'll be in the minority today. He didn't seem like a guy who had much left before he went to Minnesota, and when he got there he did less than I expected. This would be someone to pick up if you're a desperate team looking to add a name. And as for locker room presence, that's all fine and good, but it really takes a lot of those guys to make a difference.

He might come in and make a few plays here and there, but we already have guys who can do that. I remember way back in 2000, when I was just a little too young to know better, I got all excited when we signed Jake Reed, because I knew he was a really good player for the Vikings. He was already washed up by this time, but I didn't follow other teams closely enough at that time to realize it. He looked like a dinosaur out there in the short time he played for us, and then broke his leg if I remember correctly.

I see Jennings in a similar mold.

Two seasons.

Two different offensive staffs.

FOUR different QB's.

I don't care who you are, that sucks....

Similar to CJ Spiller (right system, better results) - if you pair Greg Jennings (who's already a premier route runner) with an elite QB (similar to Favre & Rodgers) you get better results.

How could anyone be upset with:
Cooks
Colston
Jennings
Toon
Morgan

Solid group of WRs.

Re: WR Greg Jennings visiting Saints

He trashed Green Bay when he left and was underwhelming in Minnesota. That said, for the vets minimum, I'm open to taking a chance on anyone we feel could possibly contribute.

His new contract places him tied for 10th with CJ Spiller.

Sounds about right, but I could even agree he's "slightly" overpaid now, but definitely not by much. Certainly not enough to get a Tiger fan's panties all wadded up.
