Greg Jennings is still a very capable wide receiver and could be the hottest commodity still on the market.
Greg Jennings to the Cleveland Browns?
Yes, at first it seems like an impossible idea. But after ironing out some hard facts about the player and the team, it suddenly does not seem like such a murky idea anymore.
Jennings has played his entire seven-year career with the Packers and has posted three different 1,000-yard seasons with the club. Jennings, before last season, also averaged at least 14 yards per reception in every season.
The Browns, on the other hand, have not seen a receiver like Jennings in quite some time. The entire Browns offense is currently being restructured, and they have lost receiver Josh Cribbs to free agency.
Also, they have a second-year quarterback under center in Brandon Weeden and a second-year running back in Trent Richardson.
The largest ingredient that is currently missing in this offense is a clear-cut No. 1 receiver and veteran leadership.
Jennings brings both of these things to the table.
So, this is all great for the Browns, but what does Jennings get out of it?
Jennings would be featured at the starting receiver once again and would not have to take a pay cut to do so. Yes, Jennings is used to playing for a winning organization and some would say that he would want to continue to do so. However, he could be a catalyst in a remodeling of a very promising offensive system.
To go along with his star-studded status in Cleveland, Jennings would also be making top dollar. Jennings made $3.8 million last season in Green Bay. Currently, Cleveland is $33.7 million under the salary cap. This means that Cleveland could potentially entice Jennings to come aboard and make more than he did while at Green Bay.
It seems like it could be a win for both parties.
