Draft Scout M.D. Jennings News
06/06/14 - S M.D. Jennings continues to work as the first-team free safety while Chris Conte is rehabbing after shoulder surgery. Jennings is playing alongside another free-agent acquisition, strong safety Ryan Mundy.
The Packers didn't want to bring Jennings back after their secondary struggled last year.
"It was something I was prepared for going into free agency," he said. "It was out of my control. When they decided not to bring me back, it was no hard feelings.
"I looked at it as one chapter closing and another beginning."
However, Jennings definitely hopes to get the chance to show the Packers they made a mistake.
"Without a doubt, it's something that puts a chip on your shoulder," he said. "It's something you never forget. You just try to continue to get better and let that motivate you."
From Packer to Bear, it shows what kind of league it is in the free agency era when a player can don the other uniform and become part of a rival, much like former Bear Julius Peppers is doing in Green Bay now.
"I'm loyal to whatever team's helmet I put on," Jennings said "That's who I represent."
04/01/14 - S M.D. Jennings wasn't tendered as a restricted free agent by the Packers March 11.
04/01/14 - S M.D. Jennings agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears.
Jennings started all 16 games for the Green Bay Packers last season. He'll join a secondary that added former Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants safety Ryan Mundy in free agency.
Jennings became the starting free safety in Green Bay last summer when Morgan Burnett was moved to strong safety.
He is a sure tackler with limitations in coverage and was not tendered as a restricted free agent by the Packers, making him a free agent despite an active streak of 26 consecutive starts.
09/04/13 - SS M.D. Jennings is penciled in to make the start in the season opener at San Francisco on Sunday. Jennings battled fellow young player Jerron McMillian throughout the preseason for the spot vacated by the release of veteran standout Charles Woodson after last season.
09/02/13 - S M.D. Jennings would seem to be the choice to make the opening-day start at strong safety Sept. 8 at San Francisco. Jennings started three of the four preseason games. Jerron McMillian, who battled Jennings throughout training camp, started alongside Jennings in the preseason finale Thursday at Kansas City with free safety Morgan Burnett sidelined because of a hamstring injury. Jennings is listed as the starter on the team's depth chart.
