My apologies to anyone who's trying to stay the heck away from the Favre talk.
There's in interesting article in the Star Tribune this morning.
The article includes this from Ryan Longwell, referring to the Marketing offer:
“Brett is one of the icons of the franchise, but at the same time I played with Reggie White, who was an icon of the Packers franchise, too, and they let him go. He played at Carolina his last year. So, totally big-name, big-icon guys and two totally different approaches to the end of their careers.”
And this from Darren Sharper:
“I still don’t think he’s going to do that,” Sharper said. “I think if he does it’s because it’s the only option. They are saying either you do this or you come back and you’re going to be a backup or you might not be able to play for us at all. I never knew you could hold a player hostage who just wants to play football, but I’m finding out something new.”
