    Tom Pelissero of ESPN Twin Cities "heard" at the Combine that free agent Greg Jennings is seeking $14 million a year.

    $14 million annually would make Jennings the NFL's third highest paid wide receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. No one is going to pay that much for an injury-prone wideout entering his age-30 season. Per Pelissero, there is a "popular theory" among NFL front offices that wide receivers will "sit on the market" like inside linebackers did last year. In other words, they may price themselves out of the initial wave of free agency.

    Wow if this is true, forget it.

    Yeah, Jennings is delusional if he thinks he's getting more than about 7.5 or 8 million per.

    One guy "heard". I don't buy it as anything more the BS or agent talk if what he "heard" is accurate.

    I realise Hartline could get paid yes, but I also don't think Wallace is worth what he is asking. I would rather get Jennings and Hartline for a similar price to Wallace on his own than sign Jennings AND Wallace, I think Wallace will be massively be overpaid when all is said and done. Especially if teams like the Browns and Bengals are in for him as well.

    I don't think committing 20+ million to two receivers in one off season is a smart salary cap decision and we could live to regret it. if it wasn't the last year of his contract I dont think Ireland would consider it.

Tannehill needs at least one WR target that is bigger than 6'2
    Funny how Jennings had more TDs than Hartline last year despite he "who cant even get on the field".

    well it appears that i don't value what hartline brings to the table as much as you do...i can tell ya this though...if jennings issues are all injury related and not age related he's a TOTALLY different level than brian hartline...jennings is murder and actually gets in the end zone...it if't all injury groin issues and not all off due to age this is a no brainer

    Of course they "discussed" it - they have to be diligent. But reality still says this is a fairy tale idea.

    If you really think about it.. It would be very similar to signing Hartline and Wallace. Hartline is asking for maybe a mill less than what Jennings will get(7mill/yr).


    I personally wouldn't do it, but i'm not an NFL GM either..
