I would like to thank the Minnesota Vikings organization. It was an honor to play for such a great franchise for the past two seasons. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the team and made some good friends.
I would also like to thank the Vikings fans who warmly welcomed me and my family. Being a part of the Vikings and the Minnesota community has been a positive experience and a true blessing.
Jennings also said he and his family will continue to "make our home" in Minnesota, and that his foundation will remain committed to Minneapolis and his hometown of Kalamazoo, Mich.
