  • Sources: Favre informs Jets that he's retiring

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/9...iring?MSNHPHMA

    Can't say that I'm shocked. I also believe that this will stick this time, as I don't believe Brett ever really enjoyed playing in New York.

    Gotta agree with you. Plus, at that age would he really want to learn another system from another coaching staff?

          well you can bank on them talking to jeff garcia, and if favre does retire for sure they are likely trade back partners, they really could use Mark Sanchez at pick 12. they dont want to run the risk of teams trading ahead of them that need Qb's


          Tampa, and minnesota to name a couple....

                    It's a shame to see all the skeptisism Brett has brought upon himself and his retirement. Legends should retire and be revered and the door opened for them as they leave. With Brett it's become an eye rolling event where everyones tongue is in cheek. And what makes it sad is that that team starts to make plans(GB sticking with Rodgers) just to have Brett step back in like Superman. Sad to see his career end with that sour taste in our mouths.

                      Suddenly, I think the Jets would be a great place to trade Derek Anderson.
                      The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                      The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                        It's kind of sad to see a player of his stature with all of these career numbers going out with a whimper. When players of his ilk retire they should have some kind of fan fare instead of "Finally". Brett, I'll miss ya. But you did bring this on yourself.

                          Well I'm a huge Brett Favre fan. I think he's one of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game, and he's my 2nd favorite quarterback behind a certain Broncos legend I'm sure everyone here is familiar with.

                          HOWEVER...I would be lying if I said I was completely pleased with how he handled himself when he retired and unretired, and apparently how he handled himself with his teammates in New York. And there's no denying that the win/win situation for likely everyone involved would have simply been Brett staying retired the first time around, even if he had the immense desire to return (and in fairness to him, he did have the right to change his mind - everyone does). I mean, how cool would it have been for him to retire after 2007, when he had arguably one of his best seasons as a Pro?

                          As others have said, Brett brought this on himself. It's sad that there are so many fans who will have nothing but contempt and resentment towards Favre with how the last year or so have gone for him, the Packers, and the Jets. But again, that's his doing. I will, however, focus on his glory days in Green Bay, where for a time there was no one better in the NFL playing the game than him.

                            Im glad he finally re-retired. Now he can do what all the other ex-players seem to be doing...become an analyst on espn.

                              What would be the cap hit on that? I am guessing 10MM...would the Browns pay the RB then try and trade him? I keep trying to place him somewhere as a trade and keep comming back to 15MM for two years, too steep to pay.

                              J Anderson - J Beason - DJ Williams
                              R Bailey - P Amukamara - R Hill - A Goodman
