The deadline for teams to assign a player the franchise tag came and went Monday and the Packers have decided not to tag Greg Jennings.
If the Packers had tagged Jennings, they would have owed him around $10.5 million next season. Instead, Jennings will hit the free agency market and is considered to be one of the top wide receivers available. Jennings can not sign a new contract until free agency officially begins on March 14th.
Alex Marvez from Fox Sports was one of the first to break the story.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
