Ravens getting ready for Vikings receiver Greg Jennings

This hasn't been the season that veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings wide receiver envisioned when he defected from the Green Bay Packers to the rival Minnesota Vikings in March.

Jennings has been limited to 43 receptions for 517 yards and three touchdowns, undone by a revolving door at quarterback since signing a five-year, $47.5 million contract this offseason.

It's been a far cry from the big numbers that Jennings grew accustomed to when he played for the Packers, catching passes from Aaron Rodgers as he piled up 468 career catches for 7,054 yards and 56 touchdowns.

Nonetheless, the Ravens still consider Jennings dangerous and respect his skills as they get ready for Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium. He's the leading receiver on a 3-8-1 team that includes wide receivers Jerome Simpson (39 receptions, 622 yards) and Cordarrelle Patterson (30 catches, 254 yards).

"Great wide receiver," Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb said. "Ever since he was in Green Bay, he's always been one of those type guys that's a game-changer. Then, he has Patterson and Simpson beside him now. These guys, I think they're a great trio. We have to play a great game on the back end."

Jennings is a two-time Pro Bowl selection.

"He's a good receiver, been around for a while," rookie free safety Matt Elam said. "He probably knows the tricks of the trade. He can definitely be a threat because he knows what he's doing."
