Brett Favre Really Being Traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
I can’t believe the day is actually coming — not to say that all reports are correct — but the latest out of Tampa suggests Brett Favre becoming a Buccaneer could soon become a reality. From The Tampa Tribune:
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.
Once it became clear to Favre that he wasn’t welcome back in Green Bay, he became more flexible in terms of accepting a trade to clubs outside the division. The Bucs have been interested in Favre since last month, when he announced he wanted to play again.
Well, beggers can’t be choosers, and for Brett Favre to all but demand a trade from Green Bay to another NFC North team was plain selfish, not to mention pretty unrealistic. I really, truly, hope this is the last word in the saga. I will be so satisfied when he finally lands with a new team just so we can end this once and for all (until the next off-season when he retires and wants to come back, yet again). Favre in pewter? Doesn’t sound too bad to me. Now Jeff Garcia is going to be one pissed off mofo, that’s for sure.
