The Minnesota Vikings and free-agent wideout Greg Jennings have agreed to a five-year deal, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The 29-year-old wide receiver has spent his entire seven-year NFL career with the rival Green Bay Packers after being drafted in the second round by Green Bay in 2006. Jennings missed most of the 2012 season with a torn muscle in his groin and finished with career-worsts in receptions (36) and yards (366).
After the Vikings traded Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, the Vikings moved quickly to agree to a deal in principle with the lifelong Packer. Jennings topped the 1,000-yard plateau in receiving in three of his seven professional seasons with the Packers.
