Wide receiver Greg Jennings has been high on his new team the Minnesota Vikings. He has also publicly defended his new, and young, quarterback Christian Ponder. He said Ponder needed help and lacked receivers and targets. The Vikings also drafted Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.
He also has taken some shots at his former team, the Green Bay Packers.
“It’s not a free-for-all. There’s structure,” Jennings told the Star Tribune. “But there’s liberty. You can breathe. It’s like, ‘OK, I can do my thing.’ You know what you need to do, you get it done. Whereas (in Green Bay), everything was more cookie-cutter. … It’s just different. In a good way. And not knocking what we did there. Because obviously it was successful. But here, no one’s walking on egg shells.”
Certainly though the Green Bay Packers can’t be doing it wrong. They’ve won a Super Bowl in Greg Jennings tenure with the team.
The quote from the Star-Tribune is part of a larger story that will be published later this week. Where it is headed is unclear. Who where they walking on egg shells around? Aaron Rodgers? Who is reportedly sensitive.
Jennings also said he is working with rookie wide receiver Patterson.
“Being there to answer questions,” Jennings said. “Making sure to be constructive with criticism. But at the same time, letting him know when he’s doing things right. And letting him know that I’m watching him so I can get better as well. So it’s not just a one-way street. I’m not just watching him to tell him what he can do better. I’m watching him to see what I can add to my game.”
