Jennings on being a Viking: 'I love it'


Greg Jennings is still getting acclimated to life in Minnesota, but he's loving every second of his chance to play for what he thinks can be a very good team.

“I love it. I’m still very excited about the opportunities that are ahead,” Jennings said in an interview with the Star Tribune. “There’s definitely still some chemistry that needs to be developed. Trust with the unfamiliar territory of Christian (Ponder) seeing me, me seeing him, that will take some time. But it’s already starting to show itself.”

Jennings says the No. 1 reason he's enjoying life as a Viking has a lot to do with head coach Leslie Frazier.

“I’m so impressed with his mindset in trying to impact and change the culture,” Jennings said. “That’s huge. Huge. … His vision just needs a following. And not everyone is going to be willing to buy in. But if you can get the core guys to buy in, everyone else will naturally follow suit.

Meanwhile, Jennings tells the ESPN's Kevin Seifert that he's impressed with rookie receiver Cordarrelle Patterson's "definitive step." In other words, Patterson is already pretty good at getting open.

Patterson's explosiveness is why the Vikings are excited to see what he can do as a kick returner.
