    ESPN's Ed Werder reports Brett Favre is leaning against accepting the Packers $20 million "marketing" offer.

    Favre is reportedly apprehensive about the deal because he knows he still wants to play football. Though Favre does not want to put his (former) teammates in a bad spot by creating a circus atmosphere, Werder believes it's possible that Favre will report to training camp.

    No I mean I would have loved to have Brett Favre last week when he could have had more time to learn the offense, and I have never been shy about saying how Favre is being an immature media whore. That doesn't change the fact that he would have made our offense more vertical.

    SuperT is either wrong or a big fat liar. You missed going to the playoffs in 1992, 1999, 2000, 2005, and 2006. You can also call me cynical because I believe that football is a team sport.

    Favre is being very selfish.

    Matt is correct though, the Packers basically found the best solution to the Brett Favre problem.
    SuperT's wrong. We missed in '05 and '06.

Think about that for a minute and you may figure out whats really going on here. Why would they give him 20 mil to retire, for '10' frickin years? Think about that.

    Because they aren't stupid. They don't want the Vikings to win with Favre...the Packers front office can't be the cause of that.

    They have to move on. Aaron Rodgers is a #1 talent (shoulda been #1 in 2005, I mean). They want to move on. Favre should have been a man of his word, but I guess he isn't. The Packers took him at his word. You can't blame them for that. Going back to Favre would kill Rodgers' confidence.

    The Packers are handling this the best way possible. Brett Favre put them in this spot. Favre should have retired 2 years ago. You can say, "But he had a great year last year" but you can't say Aaron Rodgers' couldn't have. We don't know.

    Favre is being very selfish. Do I want him on Tampa Bay? Yeah I do, but I don't blame the Packers at all for how they are handling this.

    That must suck for Favre.

    To be that unwanted must make him feel like s***.

    20 mil to stay retired? He could play two years and make more than that.

    When I started putting it all together several weeks ago, I figured the likelyhood of Favre ending up being a Viking was about 85%. Now, I think it's closer to 98%.

    I'd like to tell you that I'm sorry that your boy Jackson is getting the boot, but I'd be flat-out lying if I did. I like the kid, and maybe in a few years he'll make a servicable backup somewhere... but I'm fairly convinced that he just doesn't have what it takes to start in this league.

    It’s come to this

    http://ww3.startribune.com/vikingsblog/?p=1761#comments

    On Wednesday morning, we speculated the Green Bay Packers might be at the point where they would consider allowing Brett Favre to end up with the Vikings. Well, that thought appears to have moved past the speculation stage.

    A source told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the Packers “were considering seeking a deal with one of their division rivals, most probably the Minnesota Vikings or Chicago Bears, if backed into a corner by the National Football League and public sentiment.”

    The newspaper reports that the Packers still would like to trade Favre to the Buccaneers or Jets but he has shown no interest in those teams. It’s widely believed that Favre’s desire is to play for the Vikings and right now it appears he might be able to force his way to Minnesota. The Bears also could use Favre, but Minnesota is a far better fit.

    Packers President Mark Murphy spent Wednesday in Hattiesburg, Miss., meeting with Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, for eight hours. WTMJ, a Milwaukee television station, reported that during the meeting, Murphy proposed paying Favre around $20 million over the next 10 years if he agreed to remain retired. It appears Favre wasn’t interested.

    Meanwhile, Commissioner Roger Goodell has yet to reinstate Favre but that is going to happen and at this point it appears the quarterback has every intention of reporting to the Packers. The Vikings, meanwhile, are in a position to simply sit back and allow this all to play out.

    It wouldn’t be shocking if the Packers received a day one draft pick from the Vikings for the 38-year-old Favre. Also, the tampering charges the Packers filed against the Vikings for contact with Favre likely would be dismissed by the league if the teams make a deal.
