Greg Jennings joins FOX Sports as an NFL analyst, contributing to a number of FOX Sports studio shows.
Drafted in 2006 by the Green Bay Packers, Jennings immediately found success on the gridiron and was named to the 2006 PFWA NFL All-Rookie Team. His early accolades foreshadowed a successful NFL career, highlighted by his integral role in the Packers’ Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at the close of the 2010 season. Jennings recorded four receptions for 64 yards and scored two touchdowns in the 31-25 showdown. A two-time Pro Bowler, Jennings recorded three consecutive seasons of 1,000+ receiving yards from 2008-10, and finished his 10-year career with 571 receptions for 8,291 yards and 64 touchdowns.
ON THE SMALL SCREEN
During his playing career, Jennings dipped a toe into television, appearing on episodes of Criminal Minds, Royal Pains and The League, in addition to traditional sports television outlets. Following his retirement, Jennings began making regular appearances on a variety of sports shows, including FS1’s UNDISPUTED, THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD and SPEAK FOR YOURSELF.
A native of Kalamazoo, Mich., Jennings attended Western Michigan University where he was a breakout star, becoming just the 11th player in NCAA Division I history to record three career 1,000-yard receiving seasons. He is deeply committed to the Greg Jennings Foundation, a private family foundation that partners with Michigan and Wisconsin organizations in educating youth by providing the necessary resources in order to help them reach their academic potential. Jennings lives in Minneapolis with his wife Nicole, daughters Amya, Alea and Ayva, and son Aice.
