Rodgers knows Jennings could depart

Greg Jennings sounded resigned to the fact that this might be his last season with the Packers during an interview this morning on ESPN’s Mike & Mike radio show. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t sound any more optimistic about Jennings’ status during an afternoon interview with ESPN Milwaukee.  “I think you have to be realistic about it and think that it might be,” Rodgers said of the possibility this could be his last year working with Jennings. “I have loved my time with Greg. Greg and I are going to be buddies whether he’s here or not. “Greg is one of those unique talents who’s both extremely gifted physically but also mentally he really understands the game and understands route leverages and coverages and where the soft spots in zones are and what my timing is for when he’s got to get his head around. Just timing with the quarterback consistently is something that takes somebody who really cares about his craft and wants to put the time in.” Despite his connection with Jennings, Rodgers knows the NFL is a business and with several potentially pricy contracts looming, the Packers can’t pay everyone. “It’s been great throwing to him, but there’s a lot of guys who may or may not get paid the next few years, and obviously with Jordy (Nelson) and his contract situation, I think you have to think about whether or not there’s room for all of us,” Rodgers said. “If there’s not, obviously you wish Greg the best. He’s a great guy and will be a great friend.”
