According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen from a few Packers sources, legendary QB Brett Favre, already retired from the NFL, is seeking his unconditional release from the Packers. He apparently wrote a letter to the Packers front office, in which he wrote his desire to play in 2008.
Favre’s agent sent that letter Thursday night, and it arrived to the Packers facilities Friday morning. Favre did not want to force the Packers’ hand and write a request to remain on the 80-man active roster. Under league rules, the Packers would either have to grant his wish or release him.
He also didn’t request a trade because he wants the freedom to decided wherever he ends up.
My Thoughts: Wow. Well, I guess I saw this one coming, but I never thought I’d see Brett Favre ever play for another team again. SoB’s Dev called his return way back on March 4 when Favre initially retired: “But the truth is, I still think he will play, for the Packers, next season…Stay tuned with this one, it might turn out to be the same Brett sagas we’ve become accustom to hearing about right on up to Training Camp time.“
Obviously, the Patriots won’t pursue Favre, but teams within the division (i.e. Buffalo, Miami, and maybe even the Jets) would and should be interested. Stay tuned.
