A reliable target for both Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre, Greg Jennings announced his retirement today after a 10-year career in the NFL.

The Bleacher Report says:

Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings officially announced his retirement from the National Football League on Monday, marking the end of a 10-year career.

The Packers selected Jennings in the second round of the 2006 draft. It didn’t take long before he proved himself as a high-impact player, catching 12 touchdowns in his second season and developing into one of the league’s most reliable targets for Brett Favre and then Aaron Rodgers.

Jennings racked up three straight seasons with at least 1,100 receiving yards starting in 2008. He also tallied 224 catches and 25 touchdowns during that span.

In all, the Western Michigan product recorded 425 catches for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns across 96 games with the Packers. He added 50 grabs for 673 yards and six touchdowns in 10 playoff contests, highlighted by a triumph in Super Bowl XLV.
