Detroit Lions Insider Says “Don’t Even Think About” Greg Jennings


Big names have a tendency to get fans excited during free agency. One of those that could be available for the Lions this offseason is Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings.

In many ways, the fit seems natural. Jennings appears on his way out of Green Bay with the emergence of other receiving weapons like Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. In fact, Jennings has already listed his Green Bay-area home for sale. The Lions have a need for an outside receiver and Jennings is still plenty capable of contributing at a high level. Add in the fact that Jennings is a Kalamazoo-native and attended Western Michigan University and a deal feels like a no-brainer.

Ah, but then there is that whole business of the money. Time to hit the brakes on that Lions-Jennings dream.

Is it impossible? No, there is probably very little that is really impossible. But I have a hard time believing Twentyman would be as strong as he was unless the chances of Jennings becoming a Lions were highly unlikely. Lions fans are better off dreaming about big name free agents that are more realistic targets. Perhaps Reggie Bush
