Report: Veteran WR Greg Jennings scheduled to meet with New Orleans Saints


After veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings met with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he left without a deal.  Now, according to reports, he has another visit on the agenda — the New Orleans Saints.

After trading away Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills, the Black and Gold are without question in the market for another pass catcher.  Greg Jennings isn’t the Pro Bowl wideout he once was, but does bring a voice to the locker room and leadership out on the field — something the Saints lacked in 2014 if you exclude Drew Brees.

The 31-year-old spent time with the Green Bay Packers after being selected in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft, eventually bringing his talents to the Minnesota Vikings in 2013, where he played for two season before becoming a free agent.

Injuries have been an issue in the past, slowing down his production over the past few seasons.  However, since 2006, Greg Jennings has racked up a solid 8,083 receiving yards and 63 touchdowns on 552 career receptions.

He made the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2011 and was part of the Green Bay Packers championship team just one year after the Saints won the Super Bowl.  It will be interesting to see how things pan out for Greg Jennings and New Orleans.
