Jennings makes a catch in the NFC playoffs.
Greg Jennings could be the free agent best suited to fill the Arizona Cardinals hole at wide receiver. There's no doubt Larry Fitzgerald is the top wide receiver but a 1-2 punch of Fitzgerald and Jennings would be something to be reckoned with.
He was being courted by NFC North rival Minnesota, according to the Pioneer Press. The Vikings sent Percy Harvin to Seattle and look to Jennings to try and fill that void.
Jennings is still in play and his price may have come down a bit after Wes Welker signed a two-year, $12-million deal with Denver. Perhaps at a reduced price, Arizona might want to kick the proverbial tires on him.
Jennings is coming off a season when he missed time with an abdominal injury that needed surgery to repair. When healthy, Jennings puts up strong numbers. He's had at least 65 receptions and 950 yards in each of his last four full seasons. Those numbers could suffer if he came to Arizona since there's a downgrade in talent at quarterback.
Arizona is reportedly close to signing Josh Cribbs away from Cleveland. He'd be able to boost the team on kickoff returns and as a third wide receiver but isn't in a position of being able to take the heat off of Fitzgerald. But the deal is not quite in place, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The Cardinals have an additional level of need after cutting Early Doucet earlier this week.
Victor Cruz is still out there on the market but is unlikely to move from the New York Giants. Cruz is signed to a first-round tender, according to USA Today. In order for Arizona to get its hands on Cruz, the Cardinals would have to give up the seventh overall pick in the draft. That's highly unlikely at best.
Arizona missed out on Welker while Mike Wallace finalized a deal with the Dolphins and Dwayne Bowe chose to stay put in Kansas City.
