After days of speculation surrounding the future of free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings, the veteran has made his decision. It was no secret that Jennings was choosing between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings and the longtime Packer has decided to move on in favor of his NFC North rival.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter passed along the news:
Greg Jennings reached agreement with…the Vikings.

Jennings follows Brett Favre and Ryan Longwell as longtime Packers players that have decided to bolt to the division rival. With the signing of Jennings in Minnesota, the Vikings vs. Packers rivalry is going to have an added storyline and even more animosity.
On the field, Minnesota was desperate to add a No. 1 wide receiver after trading Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks. Jennings will fill that void.
