Finally, we’re making some ground. After all of the speculation, the he said, she said quotes and misquotes, we finally know the truth.
Brett Favre wants back into the NFL, and the Packers don’t want him on their team.
While it doesn’t appear likely that either side will be changing their mind anytime soon, (Brett is set on returning, and the Packers are focused on Aaron Rodgers) now is the time to start focusing on where Favre will be playing next season.
The Green Bay Packers have emphatically stated they will not release Favre, in fear he could go to a rival and beat them twice a season. They probably would be reluctant to let him go to another NFC team, as well, in fear they could meet him in the playoffs.
