M.D. Jennings made a visit last month to Tupelo’s Lawndale Elementary, because he’s a nice guy.

So I was checking out what’s trending on Twitter, seeking an idea for today’s Social Buzz post, when a familiar named popped up: M.D. Jennings.

As you may know, Jennings starred at Calhoun City before putting together a strong career at Arkansas State. He went undrafted but caught on with Green Bay, where he spent three seasons. Today, the 25-year-old safety was signed by Chicago as a free agent.

Jennings’ signing could be easily overlooked considering all the free-agent action taking place today, most notably Demarcus Ware going to Denver. Jennings has been a solid player, but perhaps his most notable moment was also one he’d like to forget.

Early during the 2012 season, Green Bay was trying to hold off a Seattle rally when Jennings appeared to make a game-saving interception in the end zone. But the replacement officials – remember, this was when the regular officials were locked out – ruled touchdown. Seattle won, and both Jennings and the Packers got screwed.

But on to bigger and better things for Jennings in Chicago. At least he’s used to bitterly cold weather by now.
