Packers considering Greg Jennings for franchise tag

Unexpectedly, the Green Bay Packers are still considering placing the franchise tag on wide receiver Greg Jennings. This, according to a tweet from's Ian Rappoport:

Jennings, who will turn 30 at the start of the 2013-2014 NFL season, will be owed just over $10 million by the Packers should they go through with giving him the franchise tag. Jennings had 36 receptions for an average of 10.2 yards in an injury-shortened 2012 season and has been a key cog in the Packers' recent success. However, the team also has three young receivers waiting in the wings in James Jones, Randall Cobb, and Jordy Nelson.
