It would be dumb not to get Greg back. I don't care how hard it is. He is our top receiver and to not resign him would definately piss me off. He is a not only a great receiver but an outstanding YOUNG leader.
Hard to find now-n-days.
He has also already stated it is not about the money...I don't take Greg as one to say something and not mean it.

This is all based on assumption that Ted Thompson doesn't want to pay a WR. I don't think he's really had enough opportunity to establish a track record in that department. The JWalk situation was a huge Charlie Foxtrot. Tons more factors went into that trade, as we all know.

But I think it gets done. GJ has been an absolute gem since his first step onto the field, and his locker room presence is indisputable. We gotta lock him up.

What seems to be missing from this article, and I find it odd.

They seemed to forget that Ted re-inked Driver to a pretty sizable deal during his term.. kind of curtails the whole won't pay a WR. Granted not the same size of deal, but still a deal on a aging player with the needle on the career pointed more down than up.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Good catch. I read this and was thinking the same thing..."wait, isn't Donald Driver a Wide Receiver?"

No way Ted lets Greg walk away. At a minimum, he'll be franchised. Is he deserving of a big time Larry Fitzgerald contract? It's debatable. He's up there in terms of ability and honestly, the best wide receiver Green Bay has had since Sterling Sharpe.

Thompson knows what he has with Greg - at least, I hope so. He'd be blind to not see it. Letting go of an aged legend is one thing, but letting go of the best receiver in the NFC North is unforgiveable.

All this hand wringing.......reguardless of what some think, Ted Thompson is NOT an idiot.
He WILL get Jennings signed.
I'll bet my left nut on it.

Thompson went against consensus to draft Jennings back in 06. Now that it's paid off, why wouldn't he retain his excellent draft pick?

I hope you don't mean it seriously when you ask who was Fitzgerald before this year. He's had like 3 seasons better than Jennings had this year.

Eew, clicked your link and found out about this years Pro Bowl jerseys. What an ugly things. http://www.nflshop.com/p...ex.jsp?productId=3444688

Anyway, I think resigning Jennings won't be that much of a problem, as long as we have the cap room. If we do bring in Peppers for instance and will have to resign some other guys, WR seems to be the position to let someone go if necessary. I mean, we have some depth there, especially if Thompson would draft another guy.

That said, I think Jennings will be back for another 4 years, at least.

Very good point. I think it would go against Thompsons religious beliefs not to re-up one of his own prised draft picks, his best pick by far.

If I'm not mistaken, didn't he select Aaron Rodgers?

No way, GPG. Because, you see, he hasn't won any games inside of 2 minutes yet. How could you make such a rookie mistake? :P
