    REPORT: PACKERS, JETS IN “SERIOUS TALKS”
    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 31, 2008, 8:53 p.m. EDT
    The Green Bay Press-Gazette is reporting that the New York Jets are in serious talks with the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre’s agent about a trade that would send Favre to the Big Apple.

    In fact, there’s actually a headline right now on the Press-Gazette web site reading, “All But Over: Favre to Go to Jets (It’s Over: Favre traded to Jets)” although there’s no story under that headline, and it has the appearance of something that was mistakenly put up by an overzealous web producer. (UPDATE: That headline has now been removed.)

    However, there’s no mistaking that the Press-Gazette is reporting that the Jets “have shown a growing interest” in Favre, and they now appear to be the favorites to land him.

    Favre was reportedly planning to fly from Mississippi to Green Bay this evening, but he has apparently now canceled those plans.
    Wow, right after I post that this was a pipe dream on another thread We'll see what happens but this is pretty exciting if true

    The Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the only teams that have permission to speak with Favre about a potential trade for now. Favre's agent, Bus Cook, has been in talks with the Jets, who have shown a growing interest, but Cook has not been working closely with the Buccaneers, according to two sources.

    Favre would have to sign off on any trade before a new team would be willing to give up compensation for him, because if he refuses to report to the new team’s camp, the trade would be voided. The extent of Cook’s talks with the Jets means Favre at least is considering playing for them.
    omg...

    this is a legit link... I can't believe this is happening... still not sure if it is a good idea. Also could be that the Packers are leaking this to try to drive up the price in the division.

    I started that thread earlier thinking it would get, maybe, 15 replies then fall off the main page.
