In an interview with USA Today's Robert Klemko, free-agent wide receiver Greg Jennings said that the quality of the team's quarterback will be a major factor in where he decides to play next season.

"Coaching means a lot, the dynamic of the team," Jennings told Klemko. "To me, the quarterback means a lot, if they have one or not, and I have to make sure my family is comfortable."

Jennings' statement seems like the norm for free-agent wide receivers, but Klemko points out that it likely rules out the Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles — all of which have shaky situations at quarterback.

SI.com's Peter King ranks Jennings the No. 9 available free agent on the market, and second among wide receivers to Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace.
