Best of Greg Jennings as a Vikings

His time with the Vikings was brief, but he was still a productive receiver despite ordinary quarterback play.

After a 10 year career in the NFL, wide receiver Greg Jennings announced his retirement via Youtube July 25. 

"Football is over. I'm done. No more big hits," Jennings said in the retirement announcement with an ear-to-ear smile. He appears to be at peace with his decision, stating that although he's physically capable of competing, it's time for him and his family to move on. 

Jennings spent the first eight years of his career with the Green Bay Packers, but left in 2012 to the division rival Vikings. It was during the back end of his career, but Jennings totaled 1,546 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns during his two years in Minnesota. He was a far cry from the talent that he was under Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, but was still a productive receiver with some highlight-worthy plays. 

Jennings corralled this pass through traffic against a stingy Buffalo defense. 

Against the Dolphins, Jennings faked left, and cornerback Brent Grimes bought it. Next thing Miami knew, Jennings was strolling into the corner for a 21-yard touchdown. 

Jennings torched the entire Eagles' secondary for this 57-yard touchdown. 

Not one...not two...not three, but four broken tackles en route to this 70-yard touchdown.

"This smile is not going to be removed, it's going to be enhanced," Jennings said. "The same dedication and the same work I put into [football]...I'm pursuing everything else with the same mindset."
