    Re: Favre being shopped by Packers

    If I'm Packers general manager Ted Thompson, I keep Favre on the roster, but make it unmistakably clear that he'll be the third-string quarterback behind Rodgers and rookie Brian Brohm, which means he won't be active on game days unless there's a run on injuries. Sure, it's not the best use of the salary cap, but somehow it seems worth it. Plus, Green Bay can pretty much guarantee Favre will re-retire by Week 3 and we can all get on with our lives.
    I don't think Goodell will let that happen:

    According to a source, Goodell has stressed to the Packers that they cannot prevent him from playing.

    i dont understand how Goodell can force the Pack to play Favre, its the Pack's right to choose who starts and who doesnt. And from the article that says the Pack would make him inactive, that would be very smart of them, i believe the best thing they can do unless they pull off some BS first day draft day trade

    Should be interesting... but this HAS to be resolved in the next 48-hours... wouldn't you think?

    Can't wait to see how it plays out.

    12 million dollars says that won't happen.
    JMHO!

    All he has to do is pull a Jerome Bettis impersonation and come up with a nagging injury, wink wink, and he gets paid to be a 3rd stringer.
    They can't cut him if he is injured or some crap like that.
    That is why the bus faked his injury the season before the super bowl win.

    Re: Favre being shopped by Packers

    Goodell already stated that if Favre applies for reinstatement, he will pull the trigger.

    My guess is Favre shows up at camp tomorrow looking for his $12 mil check.

    Pay up TT!

    This has to set the Green and Gold back financially.
    I bet they weren't counting on that money being used.

    Re: Favre being shopped by Packers


    This on PFT (FWIW)


    MURPHY HEADING TO MISSISSIPPI TO TALK FAVRE OUT OF SHOWING UP


    New Packers president Mark Murphy, who might want to renegotiate his compensation package given the events of the past few weeks, is putting in some overtime in the Brett Favre fiasco.

    Specifically, Murphy is flying to Mississippi in a last-ditch attempt to persuade Favre not to report to Packers training camp, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

    And this:

    Once he’s reinstated, Favre won’t be able to block a trade — unless the team that hopes to acquire him needs to re-work his $12 million base salary in order to fit him under the cap.
