Vikings release Greg Jennings-- Sat Mar 14 1:45 pm --
Changes in the wide receiver corps
Less than 24 hours after the Vikings traded for Mike Wallace, the team released Greg Jennings.
The Vikings signed Jennings to a five-year, $45 million contract two years ago. By releasing Jennings, the Vikings will free up at least $5 million in cap space. If they designate him as a post-June 1 cut, they can save $9 million in space but dead money will carry into 2016.(Minneapolis Star Tribune)
FF Today's Take:Jennings lofty salary wasn't matching his production and he became expendable once the team traded for Mike Wallace. The Vikings will head into 2015 with Wallace and Charles Johnson as their top two wide receivers.
