This has been a frustrating 2012 season for Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings. In the midst of a contract year — likely his final shot at a big deal — the Packers wide receiver has been sidelined with a core muscle injury, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
This month, he finally returned from surgery. In his third game back Sunday at Chicago, Jennings caught four passes for 50 yards.
His future in Green Bay, of course, has been cloudy at best. The 29-year old will likely want a deal worth more than the $11.1 million average Tampa Bay’s Vincent Jackson received last off-season.
Aside from finances, the Packers continued to win with Randall Cobb (77 receptions, 892 yards, 7 touchdowns), James Jones (51-622-12) and Jordy Nelson (46-658-6) at wide receiver.
On Tuesday, Jennings admitted himself there might not be a place for him in Green Bay beyond this season. Jennings said his “educated guess” is that he will not be back with the Packers next year.
“If I had a choice, if it was just my decision only, absolutely I would be here in a heartbeat,” Jennings said. “I wouldn’t want to leave at all. But obviously it’s two sides. So the Packers are going to do what’s best for them and hopefully I’m what’s best. But if not, I have 31 other teams that hopefully I can show them my resume, then walk into the door and start back over.”
