Frazier not high on Jennings' comments

Jul. 27, 2013
 

Leslie Frazier has had enough of Greg Jennings’ narrative.

During an interview with ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert, the Minnesota Vikings coach said he plans to sit down and talk with his new wide receiver prior Saturday’s practice about the recent string of comments he’s made about his time with the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Since leaving Green Bay after seven seasons for a five-year deal in Minnesota earlier this offseason, the 29-year-old Jennings has been vocal in his criticism of Rodgers and his leadership in the locker room.

What started as seemingly playful jabbing hit fever pitch over the last month during interviews with ESPN’s “First Take” and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune where Jennings voiced his discontent with how the spotlight shined on Rodgers in Green Bay instead of the team.

“That's not something that we're high on," said Frazier via Seifert and reiterating what he earlier told KFAN-100.3, "and he and I are going to talk before we practice [Saturday afternoon]. I've got to grab him. That's not how we do things. We'll talk. We're going to talk about it. He has strong feelings regarding his former team, and that's good. But there is a way to get that communicated, and we've got to sit down and he and I have got to talk a little bit."

Throughout the offseason, he’s refused to address Rodgers by name, mainly sticking to “12.”

Both Rodgers and Packers coach Mike McCarthy chose their words wisely when speaking about the topic of Jennings with the Green Bay media with McCarthy offering a playful one-liner of: “When you put that purple on, something happens to you.”

Whatever the case may be, it’ll be interesting if Frazier’s pep-talk does anything to quiet Jennings’ sentiments.
