NFL free agency rumors: Jaguars have interest in Greg Jennings

New, comments

Some speculated Greg Jennings could be a fit for the Jaguars and the team has admitted they're interested.

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed just two free agents on the offensive side of the ball this offseason, Julius Thomas and Jermey Parnell (sorry, not including a PR/KR), which was a bit of a surprise to some. The team did chase Randall Cobb, but he ended up staying with the Green Bay Packers before free agency even started.

We speculated last week that someone like veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings seemed as if he could be a fit on the Jaguars and general manager Dave Caldwell seems to agree.

via Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union, who's at the NFL owners meetings:

Caldwell said the Jaguars have "probably some interest," in free agent receiver Greg Jennings, who was released last week by Minnesota.

"We'll see where it goes," Caldwell said. "We have to get the input of our coaches and the rest of the personnel staff when we get back."

Jennings doesn't have a visit scheduled with the Jaguars.

Jennings, 30, would seem to fill the teams need for a veteran receiver who can play the slot, something Caldwell specifically mentioned he would like to add earlier in the offseason. Jennings played a lot of snaps for the Minnesota Vikings in the slot and while his overall production was disappointing, he was also dealing with a dumpster fire of a quarterback situation until this past season, his best season with the Vikings.
