In seven NFL seasons, Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has primarily caught passes from Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre.

Yes, Jennings has experienced the joys of stellar quarterback play. And as he told USA Today‘s Robert Klemko in a story published Sunday, a team’s quarterback situation is one of his decision-making factors in free agency.

Said Jennings, per USA Today: “Coaching means a lot, the dynamic of the team. To me, the quarterback means a lot, if they have one or not, and I have to make sure my family is comfortable.”

The 29-year-old Jennings ranks No. 4 among all free agents in PFT’s Hot 100, with only fellow potential unrestricted free agent Mike Wallace and Victor Cruz (a restricted free agent) ahead of him.

The Packers have a solid wide receiver corps with or without Jennings, with James Jones, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb all capable performers. Whether the Packers move on without Jennings remains to be seen, but this seems clear -- should he sign elsewhere, he likely will have given the subject of quarterback play some thought.
