The Green Bay Packers have lost receiver Greg Jennings, but they will still see plenty of him.

The two-time Pro Bowler has signed with the rival Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jennings spent the last two days visiting the Vikings, who did not let him get out of town without a contract.

The deal came late on the fourth day of free agency, an indication that the market wasn't as strong as the soon-to-be 30-year-old thought.

Financial details weren't immediately available, but according to Schefter it's a five-year deal. However, it's almost certain it won't come close to the five-year, $60 million contract that free-agent receiver Mike Wallace signed with the Dolphins earlier this week.

Earlier this week, a source told the Press-Gazette that it was too soon to rule out a Jennings' return to the Packers. However, a source said on Friday that Jennings might be too prideful to accept a return to his old team after he had already put his house up for sale and said good bye to his teammates.

Jennings' departure likely ensures tight end Jermichael Finley will remain with the Packers. A source said if Jennings returned, the team likely would release or try to trade Finley.
