The Packers have discussed the possibility of trading Brett Favre to the Bears or the Vikings. According to a report in today’s Milwaukee “Journal Sentinel”, such a trade is one of the options being considered by the Packers internally. If Favre were traded to the Vikings, he would be playing against the Packers on opening night at Lambeau Field. Favre and his agent met with Packers’ President Mark Murphy for several hours on Wednesday in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
Channel 4 (TMJ4) in Milwaukee is reporting that Murphy offered Favre 20-million-dollars over the next ten years to stay retired. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has held off, so far, on approving Favre’s request for reinstatement. However, that approval may come today. Once it does, the Packers have 24 hours to release Favre, trade him, or put him on the active roster.
