Bio

Gregory Jennings Jr. is a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings. He is a former Super Bowl Champion and two-time Pro Bowler.

Early Life

Jennings was born in Kalamazoo Michigan on September 21, 1983. He played football, basketball and participated on the track team at Kalamazoo Central High School. As a senior letterman he was ranked 11th on the Detroit Free Press “Fab 50” list. Jennings would play college football at Western Michigan University.

Western Michigan Broncos

Jennings missed some playing time with a broken ankle bone in his freshman year. He recovered and made a name for himself in his sophomore season with 1,050 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. He duplicated a productive second year with another 1,000 yard receiving season with a double-digit touchdown total. In his final year at Western Michigan he pushed his game a bit further catching 98 passes for 1,259 yards. He led the NCAA in receptions and was named the Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers drafted Jennings in the second round of the 2006 draft. He made an immediate impact as rookie, starting in 11 games alongside Donald Driver. As seasons progressed, Jennings production steadily increased. In a three-year span from 2008-10 Jennings recorded 3,670 receiving yards with 25 touchdowns as QB Aaron Rodgers go-to receiver.

Minnesota Vikings

In 2013, Jennings signed a five-year deal with a division rival the Minnesota Vikings. He started 15 games for the Vikings, catching 68 passes for 804 yards and four touchdowns.
