Though the Minnesota Vikings waited a couple days into free agency to bring in Greg Jennings for a visit, probably to see whether his initial contract price had dropped, they appear to be making a strong personal pitch that they want him.

According to a tweet by former Press-Gazette reporter Tom Pelissero, who covers the Vikings for 1500ESPN.com in Minnesota, Jennings had dinner Thursday night with Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, general manager Rick Spielman and defensive end Jared Allen.

Jennings is visiting the Vikings tonight and Friday, and his dinner company suggests they might try to convince him to sign a contract before he leaves town.
