Greg Jennings Takes Out Full Page Ad Thanking Green Bay Packers Fans

Often times players will part ways with a team in the NFL and move on to a better situation or a bigger pay day, but that doesn’t mean they forget the team that gave them the chance to start their career. When players switch teams, they are forced to move to a new city and there is an adjustment period with their families. The change can be difficult, especially when you love the city that you spent so much time in.

Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings spent the first seven years of his career with the team and he chose to leave in free agency. Jennings signed with his longtime rival, the Minnesota Vikings, and now he will have to play the Packers twice a year in a different jersey.

As a farewell to the fans, Jennings took out a full page ad in the paper to say one final goodbye and thank the fans for accepting him in Green Bay.

Here is the full page ad from Jennings via Zach Heilprin of ESPN Wisconsin:

Class act. It’s great seeing players truly appreciate the fans and build a sense of family with the community. Jennings did just that and it looks like his heart will always be in Green Bay despite wearing the Purple and gold.

    Greg, always liked you, but the ad doesn’t help. Wish you the best, but it’s not OK for you to jump to the Vikings.
