The Packers reportedly are considering using the franchise tag on receiver Greg Jennings. That could be the only way they’ll keep him.

The scuttlebutt in league circles is that Jennings is looking for a deal in free agency that pays as much as $12 million per year.

Jennings, a seven-year player who turns 30 in September, doesn’t fit the profile of a guy who will blow the top of the market -- especially since he isn’t a guy who can take the top off the defense.

Steelers receiver Mike Wallace might, but Jennings is far closer to T.J. Houshmandzadeh when he first became a free agent than Wallace.
