Vikings sign Greg Jennings

MINNEAPOLIS -

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms on a deal to land free agent receiver Greg Jennings from their rivals in Green Bay.

Jennings will get a 5-year deal worth $47.5 million - $27 million will be guaranteed money.

Jennings gives Minnesota the No. 1 receiver third-year quarterback Christian Ponder has desperately needed.

Jennings caught 36 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns in eight games last season.

He bolsters a thin receiving group that grew thinner when the Vikings traded star Percy Harvin to Seattle earlier this offseason.

He becomes the latest Packer to head across the border to Minnesota. Darren Sharper, Brett Favre and Ryan Longwell are other high-profile Packers to make the move.
