When new Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker received a deal that pays him around $6 million a year and New England Patriots free agent signee Danny Amendola got a deal worth $6.1 million annually, Greg Jennings got an idea of what his salary could be for 2013. Jennings was previously hoping for a deal north of $10 million a year, but that is highly unlikely with how the market is playing out.
As he looks for a new deal and potential home for 2013, Jennings is going to a long time division rival.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jennings will visit with the Minnesota Vikings today:
And it’s on: Packers free-agent WR Greg Jennings is visiting today with…the Minnesota Vikings.

Jennings is the top free agent left on the market and the Vikings are in desperate need of wide receiver help after dealing Percy Harvin to Seattle. Locking up a player like Jennings, who is just 29-years-old is as close to a no-brainer as you can get.
