    Why would his agent ask for a release if he is retiring?
    Always a saga, but he just did the Jets a solid if he plans to play this year.
    The Jets can now put him on the reserve/retired list which takes hime off the books for the cap.
    But maybe he really is calling it quits and realizes that fighting the Jets on a release isnt worth it this year.

    So what happens if he does not allow them to put him on the list or does him saying he is retiring automatically do that?
    I was wondering the same thing. If Favre did want to go to another team, this might work. If he doesn't file the paperwork I would think that his salary would still be on the books feb 27th. Since he has told them he is gonna retire they would not be able to trade him, and there is no sense cutting players to make room for his contract, so on feb 27th they release him. Then sometime in July or August Favre changes his mind and hits free agency.

    Scares me crazy.

    By then it will be too late. We can't let Garcia slip away. He needs to be signed.

    Not so sure about that.

    This may mean Favre is closer to being a Viking. I mean, for a team that struggled with Ticket sales last year, bringing in Favre would be a smart move business-wise... not so sure about team-wise though.

    A business smart move would be to bring a SB to Minny once and for all ,and imo with Garcia we have a much closer chance..Besides Favre is expected to retire,I don´t want an injury,slow,ex-Packer, int machine on here,If so we could sign Culpepper instead much cheaper

    Not really, if he retires, the Jets still have first dibs on him, if he decides to come back again, like he did with the Pack.
    The Jets must RELEASE Him, in order for us to have a shot at him, and there is no need for them to release him if he is true to his word and retires this time.

    I'de still love to see him play with us for a couple of years, but it looks and feels to me like he really is going to retire this time.
    Next up, Garcia....LOL


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    I don't want him either... but you can't deny that having Favre wouldn't ignite a fire and increase ticket sales. From a purely $ standpoint, it's really not a bad idea for the team.

    From a "Winning a SB" standpoint... it's an awful idea.

    I think Garcia gives us more of a chance to win a Superbowl next season, as opposed to handing the keys to Tarvaris, again.

    I don't think he's our best option, but we are dealing with the chiller and co. If we bring in a young QB, who can compete I will be shocked.
