Jennings' butterfingers

Jennings will be a free agent come '09.
Greg Jennings doesn't know if he'll get a contract extension this offseason, but the Green Bay Packers wide receiver knows this much: His three dropped passes early in Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field didn't help his cause.

"That's one thing I'm afraid of — maybe they saw something today that they did not like," Jennings said with a laugh after catching five passes for 101 yards and finishing his second NFL season by leading the team in receptions (80), receiving yards (1,292) and touchdowns (nine).

Jennings, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2009 season, could joke about his drops and his contract — "I'm going up there (to general manager Ted Thompson's office) right after this," he said — because his early butterfinger routine didn't cost his team the game.
If you ask me, we better try to hang on to him.
