Nearly eclipsed 1,000 yards in ’07, gaining 920 on 53 catches, and likely would have if not for missing three games
All his big plays in 2007 helped produce a 17.4-yard average per catch, fourth-best in the NFL, and his 12 TDs were the most by a Packers WR since Javon Walker also had 12 in 2004
A second-round draft pick in 2006 who made a strong first impression as a rookie, earning a starting job

Long TD was his fourth career of 80-plus yards, setting a franchise record. Also caught a 20-yard pass on fourth-and-7 on a late fourth-quarter drive that led to the tying TD with 13 seconds left
At Minnesota (Nov. 21): Earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his first career three-TD game, catching seven passes for 152 yards (21.7 avg.) and joining Freeman and Javon Walker as the only players in club history to have at least seven catches, 150 receiving yards and three TDs in the same game. Outing marked his fifth straight game with at least six catches, the longest streak of his career and longest by a Green Bay player since Sharpe (12 games, 1993).

First TD came over the middle on a bullet throw from Rodgers, who threaded the pass between safeties Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu, with Jennings taking a big hit from Polamalu at the goal line but hanging on. Second TD came on a short corner fade, a play Jennings had been saying on the sideline would be open. Perhaps his biggest catch came in the fourth quarter, on third-and-10 from the Green Bay 25 with the Packers leading just 28-25; barely got a step on CB Ike Taylor as he snatched a laser from Rodgers over the middle for 31 yards, helping set up a FG for the game’s final points.

At Arizona (NFC Wild Card, Jan. 10): Started and led the team with eight receptions for 130 yards (16.3 avg.) and a TD. His four catches of 20-plus yards set a (then) team postseason record.

Three plays later, made spectacular one-handed grab with his left hand on back-shoulder throw from Rodgers for 6-yard TD. Made leaping 22-yard grab over CB Bryant McFadden in the fourth quarter at Arizona’s 25, showing great body control to get both feet in bounds; Packers scored four plays later on TE Spencer Havner TD catch to even the score at 45.
