Greg Jennings finally got to handle the football he really wanted from Aaron Rodgers in the locker room long after the Super Bowl ended: that silver one that tops the Lombardi Trophy.

Jennings caught two touchdown passes from Rodgers in the Packers' 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. Yet, the receiver never got to kiss or even touch the championship trophy until long after the game.

When the Super Bowl MVP quarterback walked in carrying the trophy, Jennings excitedly said, "I need to see that" before scooting through a crowd to get to Rodgers' locker.

Moments earlier, Jennings was wincing because of the pain in his left shoulder when his pads were being pulled over his head. He got hurt blocking on a play before his first TD catch.
