Looks like the New York Jets might be the team most willingly to trade with the Packers for Brett Favre. This could make things really interesting to see if Favre will want to come out of retirement for a team that went 4-12 last season. The Jets have added some talent through the draft and free agency, but will it be enough to encourage Favre to comeback?
The New York Jets have received permission to talk to retired Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, a source told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen on Friday.
Also Friday, a Packers source told Mortensen that Favre informed Packers general manager Ted Thompson by phone on Thursday that he was planning to report to the team’s training camp this weekend.
The Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have expressed interest in Favre, according to a Packers source.
