Jennings: I was 'brainwashed' in Green Bay

Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Jennings has been running his mouth a lot during the offseason about his former team, the Green Bay Packers.

Last month, Jennings questioned Aaron Rodgers’ leadership and suggested the Packers quarterback was more about himself than the team. Jennings later apologized for those comments and reportedly was told by Vikings coach Leslie Frazier to keep comments about the Packers to himself.

That lasted a little more than a week before Jennings spewed more anti-Packers sentiment in the media. This time, Jennings claims Packers players are brainwashed.

“When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed,” Jennings told KFAN radio. “There’s no ‘kind of’ to it. Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below. And so coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I’m like, ‘Wow, these are really great people.’

“It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best,” Jennings said. “And it’s like total brainwashing. And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position.”
