Minnesota Vikings Greg Jennings says Green Bay Packers brainwashed him


I guess you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Just days after Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Fraizer told wide receiver Greg Jennings to stop talking about his former team, Jennings is back at it, suggesting that the Green Bay Packers ‘brainwashed’ him.

Per Pro Football Talk:

“When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed,” Jennings told Paul Allen and Ben Leber of KFAN radio.  “There’s no ‘kind of’ to it.  Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below.  And so coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I’m like, ‘Wow, these are really great people.’

‘It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best,” Jennings said.  “And it’s like total brainwashing.  And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position.”

Jennings has playfully suggested that the “talk” between he and the Packers is nothing more than fun but it seems as if both sides are tiring of the constant back and forth.
