Re: WR Greg Jennings visiting Saints

He and Bridgewater did click very well at times last season. Jennings does do all the things you'd expect from a vet with his background - he runs routes well, he catches most of the balls thrown to him and he stays with his blocks. The only thing with him is the clear lack of speed at this point in his career, but he doesn't seem to get bothered about not being the #1 receiver.

I do think he'll sign for more than just vet minimum simply because he's still worth it, so I don't know if the Saints are really in the mix.

He's visiting Nola, right? And we have Drew Brees, Mickey loomis & SP.

I'd say we're in the mix

Re: WR Greg Jennings visiting Saints

You know, we keep hearing about all these visits, but we never hear how they go, went, whatever. Makes it kinda boring if you ask me. I mean who cares if we're not gonna hear how it went.

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.
HE might get better results, but WE as a team can get the kind of production he would likely provide from what's already in house.

Jennings was clearly on the way down before he left Green Bay. You can't use the excuse of different offense on that one. I'm not insulting the guy, I'm simply calling it as I see it. He got hurt toward the end of his tenure with the Packers and when he came back he still looked beat up, and STILL looks that way to me.

If we sign him, I'm sure it won't be for much so I don't view it as a risk, per se, but I'm also not excited by it.

Spiller is about 7-8 years younger, I believe. Not even a comparison there.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

2014 (last season)
Jennings had 59 catches for 742yds and 6 TD.
Colston had 59 catches for 902yds and 5 TD.

Name another WR or TE on our roster who came close to that....

If you call it like you see it, Jennings could arguably be our #1 WR in 2015.

Safe to say that we weren't willing to pay him what he wanted... Possibly overpaying

Dolphins sign WR Greg Jennings (2 years, $8 million): B Grade
Greg Jennings, 32 in September, is way past his prime. However, this seems like a solid signing for the Dolphins, who needed a veteran presence in their locker room in the wake of losing both Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline this offseason. Jennings will provide that, and it also helps that he's familiar with Joe Philbin's system. Jennings doesn't have Wallace's talent, but he's actually a professional who will try hard. He's also more efficient than Wallace; I suspect that Ryan Tannehill will hook up more often with the former Minnesota Viking than he did with the current one.

' Having said all of this, Miami fans shouldn't expect too much from Jennings, who has already begun declining. As a result, this signing definitely will not preclude the Dolphins from selecting DeVante Parker (if available) at No. 14 on April 30. That's what I currently have happening in my 2015 NFL Mock Draft.
No way was he worth 4 million a year
