In a very classy move, Greg Jennings took out a full-page ad in several newspapers Wednesday to thank Green Bay Packer fans.

Jennings, who played for the Packers in his first seven NFL seasons, signed a five-year, $47.5-million contract with the Minnesota Vikings last week.

The ad, which appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, among other papers, was entitled "A Bittersweet Farewell."

"It has been 7 years since I was first blessed with the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful organization and community," Jennings wrote. "I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you for opening your arms and hearts to my family and me, and for making Green Bay an easy place to love and call home."

Jennings, 29, is in the top 10 in Packers franchise history in catches (425, seventh), yards receiving (6,537, seventh) and touchdown catches (53, fifth).
