Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings has been taking shots at his former team, the Green Bay Packers, and his quarterback Aaron Rodgers all summer long. At one point his head coach asked him to stop talking about them, but he didn’t, and he hasn’t.
A picture popped up on Instagram of a Vikings helmet signed by former Packers receiver Jennings with the message “Packers Suck.”
Our Packers’ website LombardiAve.com asked if it was authentic and supposedly the recipient asked for that message, Jennings didn’t offer it. Of course he didn’t reject the suggestion either, he seemed to embrace it.
It is had to believe that Jennings has such ill will towards a team that took him to the Super Bowl and gave him a championship ring. Nevertheless they must have parted ways on bad terms.
“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.”
