Greg Jennings and the Green Bay Packers parted ways, and he signed with the rival Minnesota Vikings. He spent the majority of the offseason talking about Aaron Rodgers and making comments directed towards him through the media.
After talking about him and his former team all season, he is finally getting to play his old teammates. Now that he is getting his opportunity he is changing his tune and backing off his comments. Maybe it is the 1-5 start, or the three different starting quarterbacks they’ve used.
“That’s behind me but at the same time I have the utmost respect for that organization,” Jennings said, via Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com, presumably while doing the backstroke. “I was just really razzing a little bit with Aaron, just knowing how he is and just going back and forth with some of the guys. It wasn’t meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. It was just really messing around initially and then everyone kind of blew it a little bit out of proportion.
“I have the most respect for that organization. I had my most successful years there and I still have relations with some of the guys over there and still have the respect that I had when I was playing there with them. Even when I’m not right now I still have respect for them.”
