Come on Greg Jennings, don't be dumb.
I was all excited when I read the title, "Jennings: New deal 'pretty close.'" Unfortunately it didn't say anything of the sort. What it did say however, was rather disturbing.
When asked about his contract negotiations:
"And that’s in life in general. In corporate America, when you have your job and you’re trying to feed your family, you’re looking out for your family’s best interests."
Now I am going to do my best to try and shrug this one off, but it's is really towing the line Greg. I understand that you feel you are underpaid for your greatness, and agree wholeheartedly.
I understand you want your children to grow up secure and afforded all the opportunities to succeed. I understand you are doing your best to be a "team player."
You don't need to drag out an overused and equally transparent saying to make your point.
I am sure you are eating just fine.
EDIT: The publication added to the piece now confirming Greg Jennings thinks he is "close" to getting a deal done. It did not appear in the original story.
