RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Jennings is a Lovie Smith favorite, but now has some competition at corner after the Bears signed Kelvin Hayden. While Jennings won't blow you away with stats, he'll continue to get lots of opportunities to make plays as teams shy away from Charles Tillman.
Jennings finished 2010 as the starting left corner, but will enter 2011 having to battle against Zack Bowman for that honor again.
Signed by the Bears this offseason to provide depth at cornerback.
Jennings started 12 games in 2008, filling in for the injured Marlin Jackson and Kelvin Hayden. He played his first injury free season since being selected in the second round of the 2006 draft and was part of the Colts defensive crew that allowed the least passing touchdowns in NFL history. He recorded 68 tackles, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries in the 2008 season and should be a solid option at third cornerback for the Colts in 2009.
Jennings will serve as one of the Colts' backups at cornerback behind Marlin Jackson and Kelvin Hayden and will compete with Dante Hughes for the designation as the team's nickelback.
Jason David and Nick Harper are gone, providing young players like Jennings with a chance to play their way into major roles in Indianapolis’ now-suspect secondary. Jennings figures to be one of the leading candidates for the nickel cornerback job, but doesn’t warrant consideration as an IDP.
He has the speed to add depth right away to the secondary, but will be hurt by his size (5-8, 180 pounds). He has a shot at winning playing time at nickelback if he's healthy this summer.
