Tampa Tribune Reports Favre Could Be Traded To Bucs Soon

The Brett Favre saga could end with the NFL icon in pewter.
The Tribune has learned Favre will not stand in the way of a trade from Green Bay to Tampa Bay and the deal is likely to be finalized within 24 hours.

The chances of the trade unraveling are remote and Favre has indicated to the Bucs directly that he is willing to change teams after 16 years of growing his legend in Green Bay.

Just end it already, PLEASE.

And how funny is it that he's on the cover of Madden in his Packers gear? LOL, maybe they'll issue a new cover.

From PFT:
Quote:
JETS MAKE BEST OFFER, ARE FAVRE’S LAST CHOICE
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 6, 2008, 8:39 a.m.
It now appears that the New York Jets are the team willing to part with the best package to acquire Brett Favre in a trade, and that New York is the place the Packers would like to ship Favre, because it gets him out of the NFC.

But it also appears that of all the teams that have an interest in Favre’s services, the Jets are the team Favre least wants to play for.

Appearing on ESPN Radio this morning, Fox Sports reporter Jay Glazer said the Tampa Tribune’s report that Favre is on the verge of being a Buc is not true, and that there’s a lot of negotiation still to be done before any deal could be completed.

So I'm not the only one utterly fed up with every ESPN, NFLN and other sports channel dedicating time to this?

I think a nice basket of kittens would be great as a replacement.

Would anything stop someone like Tampa or NYJ from trading for him then sending him to the Vikings? I kinda want to see him beat the hell out of GB at least twice.

I, like everyone else, find the coverage given to the whole Favre situation ridiculous. Yesterday ESPN cut off about 10 minutes of around the horn to show pictures of Favre in an SUV basically saying he didn't get on the practice field today and negotiations were kinda rough.

They cut it off because the material would have been dated so it made more sense to go live during those ten minutes. That said though, the video of Favre in the SUV was "interesting" for lack of a better word.

NFL and ESPN radio have turned into Brett Favre radio this last month or so. I'm so tired of it I've seriously dialed down the amount of time I listen to sports radio in general. I just can't take it anymore.

I TIVO NFL Live on ESPN each day and have just fast forwarded thru most of them because it's all Favre all the time.. Typical ESPN overkill (sorry SS, but it's just too much!).. At least Peter King acknowledged there are 31 other teams and 2499 other NFL players to talk about..

Good point Matty about the Madden cover, the curse continues!!

Jeff Garcia...Brian Griese...Chris Simms...Luke McCown and now Brett Farve....


This just in...Packers cut all of their receivers to make roster room for QBs....

I wonder if he'll have to commmit to more than a year if he goes to either team.

I heard someone today saying that this might not be such a done deal and that the NYJ are offering a bigger deal for Brett.

What is Tampa or NYJ susposed to be willing to give up to get Brett?

Does anyone know for sure if you can put a stipulation in a trade agreement that says the player must play for the aquiring team, or that the player can not be traded to certian other teams?

Sigh...there's a "relationship expert" on ESPN's First Take now to discuss Favre and the Packers (and the fans).

So....how 'bout them Cubs?

re: Tampa Tribune Reports Favre Could Be Traded To Bucs Soon

I'm actually not tired of it per se, as I haven't been catching too much espn lately, just reading stuff online. I think if you tune into tv news enough, any big story will get old quick.

since this is a Skins site, what are yall's thoughts on how this impacts the Skins & nfc?
On one hand I think the packers can't repeat their 07 year w/Farve or not. On the other, if they kept him they might find a way to beat dallas in the playoffs. It would cap his career to finally win at texas stadium.

If he goes to tampa I don't see that making too big a difference for them. I still think they're a 10-6 team or so at best. I don't know that you can really say Farve would be an upgrade over Garcia when you consider that Farve has to come in and learn the system. Mabye by mid october he'd be in synch w/the O, but I could just as easily see him throwing a bunch of picks & tampa going 7-9 or something close.
