Are you tired of hearing about Brett Favre's comeback after hearing about it almost on a daily basis for the last couple of months? Or, were you glued to the tube, Internet, and newspapers just itching to get more information about what was going to happen to Favre.
Speculations galore were flying everywhere. Rumors were that he was going to compete against Aaron Rodgers for the starting job. People had him set in a purple uniform going to the Minnesota Vikings. Actually, since we are in Minnesota, we were also kinda of dreaming about Favre in purple and beating up his former team twice a year. Would have been odd though to have him play against the Packers on the night that they retire his uniform.
Well, none of that is going to happen as Brett Favre has been traded to the New York Jets. The Jets? Yep, that's right, the New York Jets.
There won't be much of a quarterback controversy once he arrives because the Jets have already released Chad Pennington.
As part of the trade, there was one condition that has made a lot of people laugh. If the Jets trade Favre to the Minnesota Vikings, the Green Bay Packers will receive three first round picks. I guess the Packers do not want to face Favre again in the regular seaon. If Favre stayed at the Jets for the next several years, he would not face the Packers until 2012.
There will undoubtedly be a lot of sports memorabilia debuting soon with Brett Favre as a New York Jets. The Jets have already started selling his #4 jersey in green. Favre's Green Bay Packers sports memorabilia is still in limited supply.
