Bears sign M.D. Jennings
by Larry Hartstein |

The Bears signed free agent safety M.D. Jennings to a one-year deal. Jennings started all 16 games for the Packers last season, making 74 tackles.

Jennings became an unrestricted free agent after Green Bay declined to make him a qualifying offer.

Safety is Green Bay's weakest link
by Larry Hartstein |

Packers starting safeties Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings combined for zero interceptions last season, the first time that's happened in Green Bay since at least the 1950s, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Every other NFL team got an interception from a safety on its roster.

"We just didn't get it done and I don't think that was a lack of ability, because the ability is there," safeties coach Darren Perry told the paper. "We just have to make sure we're consistent."

Burnett led the team with three fumble recoveries, but also paced the Packers with 17 missed tackles. Coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after the season that he wants more "impact players" on defense.

Green Bay could give a longer look to Sean Richardson or Micah Hyde, or address the safety position through free agency and the draft.

M.D. Jennings has monster day
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings, who hadn't done anything especially notable on defense coming into the day, made two huge plays Week 3 at Cincinnati. He recovered a fumble by BenJarvus Green-Ellis and returned it for a touchdown early in the second quarter and then sacked quarterback Andy Dalton on the very next drive. The touchdown was the second of his career, and the sack was the first. He also had four tackles, including three solo, on the day.

Morgan Burnett's injury could force lineup change in secondary
by Michael Hurcomb |

With Morgan Burnett's return date unknown, the Packers could be counting on safeties M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian to start in the season opener against the 49ers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Burnett left Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks with a hamstring injury.

"We both know what we're doing," said McMillian, who was competing with Jennings for starting strong safety job before Burnett was hurt. "That's the key and we have to both be communicating."

Packers can't wait to watch competition at safety
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Packers haven't decided yet who will start at the other safety position opposite Morgan Burnett this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian are the front-runners to win the job.

"I don’t think either one of those guys separated themselves in terms of being 'that guy' at the end of the last season," safeties coach Darren Perry said during OTAs. "They both made strides and I think they’re going to be fine football players, I really do. But in terms of who distinguishes themselves as 'the guy,' we’re just going to have to wait and see and enjoy the competition. It should be fun to watch because both of those guys know what’s at stake."

Jennings does have one more year in Green Bay's system over McMillian, but Perry said experience won't be the deciding factor.

"I think they’re pretty close," Perry said. "They’re pretty close. Jerron is an intelligent young man. But again, with good players and great players and average players, consistency is the one thing that always separates those guys. A lot of that is focus and being able to do it play in and game in and game out. So that’s what we’re looking for. We’re looking for the guy who’s going to be consistent, do it like we want it done and do it at a high level."
