Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings said in a radio interview Wednesday that he was  "brainwashed" when he played for the Green Bay Packers when it came to how other teams in the division were supposed to be perceived.

 "One of the things that drew me to coming over here was the makeup of the team. When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed," told KFAN Radio, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Jennings played seven seasons in Green Bay and signed a free-agent deal in March worth $47.5 million with $18 million guaranteed.

"It's like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best," Jennings continued. "And it's like total brainwashing. And I think you don't open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position, and I was afforded this position.
