No Percy Harvin? No problem, if the Vikings can nab one of the premier free agents on the market this week — and at the behest of their NFC North rivals, no less.
Greg Jennings, who is a free agent after seven stellar seasons in Green Bay, is visiting the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jennings is expected to command top dollar on the free-agent market after being a pivotal part of the Packers’ offense for several seasons. While Jennings only played eight games last year while dealing with a groin injury, at 29 the speedy outside threat still looks to have plenty to offer. He posted three seasons of 1,000 yards receiving or more in Green Bay and has caught 53 touchdown passes in his career.
The Vikings need help in their passing attack, with third-year starter Christian Ponder left with few options after Harvin’s departure.
