Greg Jennings selling Green Bay home
By James Walker
Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings will be a free agent in March -- and it appears he's already thinking about his future in another city with another team.
Jennings recently put his Green Bay-area home on the market, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This is another strong indication that the star wide receiver doesn't see himself returning to the Packers in 2013.
That is also great news for receiver-needy teams like the Miami Dolphins. Miami is considered one of the front-runners for Jennings. He once played under Dolphins head coach and former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, and the team has plenty of cap room to offer Jennings a large contract extension. It seems like a great fit for both sides.
This is yet another clue that Miami has a good shot at landing Jennings in March. Recently, Jennings' sister also tweeted about her brother leaving Green Bay to the join the Dolphins next season.
Miami should have its choice of receiver upgrades. Jennings joins a strong group of free-agent receivers that also includes Mike Wallace of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dwayne Bowe of the Kansas City Chiefs and Wes Welker of the New England Patriots.
Miami definitely needs more talent around rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Will Jennings be Tannehill's top target next season?
