Greg Jennings Plans To Visit Saints

Greg Jennings appears to be in no rush to decide on a new team, as he continues to make free agent visits and weigh his options. After meeting with the Jaguars yesterday, the plan is for the veteran wideout to visit the Saints, tweets Ian Rapoport of

So far this offseason, the Saints have parted ways with their top two pass catchers from the 2014 season, trading Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks and Kenny Stills to the Dolphins. Those two players, who combined for nearly 150 receptions last season, netted New Orleans first- and third-round picks for the coming draft, so the assumption has been that the Saints will move forward with Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston anchoring the receiving corps, adding at least one more wideout in the draft.

While that could still be the Saints’ plan, the fact that they’re planning to host Jennings suggests that they remain in the market for possible veteran help at the wide receiver position as well.

Jennings, 31, caught just 59 balls for 742 yards during the 2014 season, prompting the Vikings to cut him just two years into a massive five-year contract. The two-time Pro Bowler never seemed like an ideal fit in Minnesota, so a fresh start could benefit him. However, he’s unlikely to return to the highs of his earlier years in Green Bay. From 2008 to 2010, Jennings averaged about 75 receptions, 1,220 yards, and eight touchdowns per year with the Packers.

In addition to visiting the Jaguars, Jennings also paid a visit to Miami to meet with the Dolphins, and has been linked to the Panthers.
