MINNEAPOLIS - Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier was all smiles as he introduced his team's new wide receiver.

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms on a deal to land free agent receiver Greg Jennings from their rivals in Green Bay. The rivalry wasn't on Jennings' mind as he spoke to the media for the first time as a Viking.

"It is a business and this has happened before," said Jennings. "I'm not the first packer player to jump on this side so that makes it a little bit more relieving."

Darren Sharper, Brett Favre and Ryan Longwell are other high-profile Packers to make the move.

Jennings gives Minnesota the No. 1 receiver third-year quarterback Christian Ponder has desperately needed.

"I'm going to bring my A-game; I'm going to try to give 110 percent," said Jennings.

Jennings caught 36 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns in eight games last season. He bolsters a thin receiving group that grew thinner when the Vikings traded star Percy Harvin to Seattle earlier this offseason.

"It'll be exciting no matter who we're playing."
