The Jennings to Vikings speculation has already begun. Big upgrade over what we currently have but he's a 30 year old receiver coming off a season where he had a bunch of injuries. Jennings alone won't be enough and that will be a contract they'll end up regretting sooner rather than later.
Jennings would be a terrible move IMO. WRs do not age well and he is already showing signs of wearing down. He is a buyer beware option. I think he would be a good risk as a #2 somewhere... but the Vikes would almost certainly be looking at him to replace Harvin atop the depth chart and pay accordingly.

Agreed that this is a shortsighted decision. IIRC Harvin was irritated about the lackluster offense and how he was used in it. Well... offense was lackluster, so perhaps they should address the problem instead of trading off one of the exceedingly few legitimate playmakers on the team.
