A source tells me that Greg Jennings got a 5-year deal with a max value of $47.5 million, $18 million guaranteed. #Vikings

Greg Jennings reached agreement with…the Vikings.

Whoa. Greg Jennings has pulled a Brett Favre of sorts.
Adam Schefter reports the deal is for five years. Jennings caught 36 passes for 366 yards and 4 touchdowns in limited action due to a groin injury.
With the departure of Percy Harvin, the Vikings were in desperate need of a go to target. They have that now with Jennings. Initially, the former Green Bay WR had said Quarterback play would factor into his decision. With Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel standing behind center in Minnesota, you have to believe money won the day.
