MILWAUKEE (AP) - Brett Favre did not report to the Green Bay Packers' training camp in an attempt to ease tensions in the three-time MVP's ongoing standoff with the team.
Favre tells si.com that Packers general manager Ted Thompson has
asked him for "a couple of days" to resolve the situation.
That agreement, presumably, would be a trade. The New York Jets
and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have emerged as two potential trade
partners for the Packers, and Favre tells si.com that he would
consider a trade to any team.
Saturday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he didn't know how the Brett Favre unretirement saga will play out over the next few days. But, he did back Aaron Rodgers as his starting quarterback.
