Free-agent WR Greg Jennings selling Green Bay house

Holding out hope that wide receiver Greg Jennings will be back with the Green Bay Packers for the 2013 season? This is not a good sign.

The soon-to-be free agent has put his suburban Green Bay home up for sale, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The house, which he bought after being drafted in 2006, is listed for $525,000.

There has been virtually no encouraging news all season that Jennings could return. The 29-year-old is in line for the last major payday of his career, and the Packers are unlikely to pay it with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, linebacker Clay Matthews and defensive end B.J. Raji due extensions in the near future. Jennings was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2011, but has dealt with injuries the past two seasons and was limited to eight games in 2012. The Packers are loaded at receiver with Jordy Nelson, James Jones and the emergence of Randall Cobb.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson isn't afraid to let a free agent walk one year too soon rather than a couple of years too late. It's happened recently with Aaron Kampman, Scott Wells and Cullen Jenkins. Expect Jennings to join that list.
