Well, it took some time, but it appears that Rick Spielman got his man.
According to ESPN, the Vikings have reached an agreement with the former Packers receiver, who will provide the Vikings with a legitimate weapon for Christian Ponder’s second season as the full time starter.
Jennings will turn 30 in September and was reportedly looking for a deal north of $10 million. Jennings has been plagued by injuries, and saw an increase in competition for snaps in Green Bay, over the last two seasons but was one of the NFL’s premier receivers from 2008 to 2010.
The deal is reported to be over five years, which means Jennings will be 35 years old when it expires, and financial terms are currently unknown. A press conference is scheduled for 7:15 tonight.
We will have updates coming soon.
