Greg Jennings will likely be asked to renegotiate his contract.
Jennings is scheduled to make $8.9M in 2015 base salary and count $11M against the cap. The Vikings have all the leverage, as they can save $9M of that cap money by making the rapidly declining 31-year-old a post-June 1 cut. Jennings is worth something closer to No. 3 WR money at this point and may go into that role if the Vikings add talent to the position via the draft. Our Josh Norris has mocked West Virginia WR Kevin White to Minnesota at No. 11 overall. Feb 3 - 10:43 AM

Greg Jennings secured 3-of-5 targets for 45 yards in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Bears.

The stat line was uninspiring, but Jennings contributed big catches as the Vikings' offense moved the ball with relative ease against the Bears' sieve-ish defense. He had an early touchdown overturned on replay. 31 years old, Jennings finishes his second season as a Viking with 59 catches for 742 yards and six touchdowns. At this stage of his career, Jennings is a lower-end No. 2 receiver but would be an excellent No. 3. His 2015 base salary is a whopping $8.9 million, however, none of which is guaranteed. It's fair to wonder if GM Rick Spielman will approach Jennings about an offseason pay cut. If Jennings returns to Minnesota, he'll probably be best viewed as a low-ceiling WR4.

Greg Jennings secured 3-of-3 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 16 loss to the Dolphins.

Jennings gave the Vikings a 14-0 lead on a 21-yard throw from Teddy Bridgewater early in the second quarter. He later added a 24-yard gain on a pretty throw by Teddy. Still a useful receiver at age 31 -- albeit better suited for a third wideout role -- Jennings will close out the season against Chicago in Week 17.

Greg Jennings (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Jennings was limited in practice this week with a hamstring issue. He's the No. 2 option behind Charles Johnson, and remains a low-upside WR4.

Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jennings should be available this week despite his hamstring issue. He'll be updated again on Thursday.

Greg Jennings secured 3-of-5 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 15 loss to the Lions.

Jennings' second-quarter TD catch from eight yards out gave the Vikings a 14-0 lead. He continued to run possession routes and operate as a chain mover for Teddy Bridgewater. Jennings is still a useful real-life NFL receiver, but his fantasy value is adversely affected by a rookie quarterback and his lack of big-play ability. Charles Johnson has clearly asserted himself as Minnesota's top wideout.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:31:00 PM

Greg Jennings was held to five catches for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Jets.

Jennings was targeted seven times, but failed to take advantage of a matchup with the Jets' secondary. He's the No. 2 option behind Charles Johnson, and remains a low-upside WR4. Jennings has a matchup with the Lions in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 05:23:00 PM

Greg Jennings caught five passes for 45 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' Week 13 win over the Panthers.

He was targeted a team-high six times on a day Teddy Bridgewater attempted just 21 passes. Jennings scored his 17-yard touchdown in the flat to the left just before halftime, beating the defense to the front pylon. Jennings remains a low-upside WR4. He'll remain that way in Week 14 against the Jets.

ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling considers Greg Jennings a prime candidate to restructure his contract in the offseason.

Adrian Peterson ($15.4 million) and Jennings ($11 million) are scheduled to have Minnesota's two highest cap hits in 2015, and the Vikings could clear $18 million against the cap by releasing them. Jennings might make for a prime post-June 1 cut in order to split his $6 million dead money hit. At 32 (next September), there's no upside left. The Vikings would be better off with Charles Johnson, Cordarrelle Patterson, Jarius Wright, and a couple younger receivers.

Greg Jennings caught four passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Packers.

Jennings played despite being listed as questionable with a rib injury, and saw limited snaps in the first-half. He was able to find the end-zone on a five-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. Jennings continues to be the most reliable receiver for Teddy Bridgewater, but finished behind Charles Johnson in targets. He'll be a low-upside WR4 option in Week 13 against the Panthers.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 05:27:00 PM

Greg Jennings (ribs) is active for Week 12.

Jennings missed practice time this week, but was expected to play despite being listed as questionable. He'll be a WR4/5 against the Packers. The Vikings inactives are RB Matt Asiata, DT Sharrif Floyd, FB Zach Line, LB Mike Mauti, OG David Yankey, LB Brandon Watts, and OG Austin Wentworth.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 11:38:00 AM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Greg Jennings (ribs) is expected to play Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices before returning Friday and earning a questionable tag on the injury report. He's nothing more than a WR4/5.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 09:08:00 AM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expects Greg Jennings (rib, questionable) to play in Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but returned on Friday. It's a blow to Charles Johnson truthers, who surely would have loved to have twirled Johnson in daily leagues. Jennings should start against his own team.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 01:44:00 PM

Greg Jennings (ribs) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Jennings' status is up in the air for Sunday's game against the Packers. Owners need to be making other plans in their WR4/5 spots.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 02:23:00 PM

Greg Jennings (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jennings' status for Week 12 against the Packers is uncertain after he exited last week's game early. He's barely on the WR4/5 radar in the first place.
