    After we signed 2 WR's and reportedly a 3rd to an offer sheet I think that pretty much put the Jennings hope to rest

    Wasn't a huge fan of signing Jennings anyway.

    While I'd love to see Jennings in a Patriots uniform his age is definitely a factor. New England wants to get younger and more explosive at the receiver position. Emmanuel Sanders while not as polished as a receiver as Jennings is right now, can, like Jennings, play all 3 receiver spots and offers a lot of the same qualities that Greg possesses along with above average return ability.

    It remains to be seen what the contract details are, but he's likely priced himself out of the Patriots' price range with his demands. In my opinion, Emmanuel is a better fit for us at this stage of the game. The Patriots are smart to have made him the target instead.

    The Vikings desperately needed to sign a WR of Jennings' caliber so they likely overpaid from a leverage standpoint.

    Probably wasn't coming to New England anyways. Glad he didn't return to Green Bay.

    Ack..another whiff by the Patriots.

    They are acting like they can draft a WR which is delusional. This is what happens when the coach is a GM and no one has the balls to question his personnel decisions. There is no way that BB will be able to draft the kind of WR that the Patriots need.

    Not at all. They aren't and can not sign every player you have heard is good. Belichick is actually building a real football team, not one that you want to have on Madden 2014, but one that will compete for a championship.

    No way he is worth it. Follow the big money WR deals and you will find the teams that aren't going to make the playoffs.

    Unless Fred is really Felger trolling our board and in that case he is used to doing that every weekday.

    LOL you really think the Pats were gonna shell out this kind of money to an aging WR like Jennings:

    $47.5 million contract, including $18 million guaranteed.


    I don't see that as a whiff at all. I see it as them saving their money to spend on other groceries that are fresher and cheaper.

    Report: Greg Jennings turned down New England Patriots offer - NFL.com

    I get that it was his last big contract but I thought Minnesota was pretty lucky to make the play-offs last year, and wouldn't be surprised to see them regress this year.

    Jennings may end up regretting his choice, although he can always wipe away those tears with a couple extra millions of dollars.

    The people complaining about not getting a 10m a year WR would have been the same people complaining there's no pass rush/secondary because of "wasting" money on a WR :rolleyes:

    Lmao, we offered 6mil/yr to Jennings, he prob laughed at that....this also shows me that we are going back to the old days of having a lot of good yet cheap options as skill players on offense, no more paying someone more than 7-8mil a yr....

    Also seems like we're hesitant to pay another receiver or TE on this team more than Gronk

    The moment that Jennings won a Super Bowl his priorities changed from winning to padding his stats and his bank account. We threw a $6M/year offer at him to see if he was interested in winning. Clearly he isn't.

    No love lost here.

    I'm not sure why an offer like that is made, does he actually expect any sane person to take that when they are worth 9-10 million?

    The money was too great for him to pass up. That much is obvious after he proclaimed to only want to play for a good QB & coach as a factor into his decision.

    I doubt either Christian Ponder or Leslie Frazier fit that mold.

    we offered jennings 6mil/yr
    packers offered 8mil/yr
    and vikings offered 10mil/yr

    jennings went for the cash, if he wanted to win, he could have taken EITHER us or stayed home in GB for a middle ground
