    Favre to vikings? the window is open..

    NEW YORK -- Brett Favre was released from the reserve-retired list by the New York Jets on Tuesday night, making the quarterback a free agent if he decides to again come out of retirement.
    When Favre was dealt to New York from Green Bay in August, there were conditions in the trade that required the Packers to be compensated if the Jets moved the three-time MVP. Those no longer apply if he signs elsewhere.
    The 39-year-old Favre, who spent one disappointing season with New York, had requested the move several weeks ago through agent Bus Cook, but insisted he has no plans to come out of retirement for a 19th season.
    "Nothing has changed," Favre said in a statement. "At this time, I am retired and have no intention of returning to football."
    Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum also said Favre had not indicated to him any desire to come back.
    That, of course, won't stop any of the likely speculation that Favre could end up with any number of teams, especially if the torn biceps tendon that hampered him for much of last season has healed.
    After 16 seasons with the Packers, Favre had a tearful retirement in March 2008, but decided to return to football a few months later. Green Bay had already moved forward, anointing Aaron Rodgers the starter as a bitter falling out with Favre ensued.
    The Packers traded him to the Jets, injecting excitement into a franchise that hasn't been to a Super Bowl since 1969. Things started off promising as Favre played well and the Jets took over first place in the AFC East, with a playoff run in their sights. But Favre struggled down the stretch with the arm injury as the Jets finished 1-4 and failed to make the playoffs, costing coach Eric Mangini his job.
    Favre announced his retirement on Feb. 11, saying he was done with football -- this time for real.

    Are we that bored? And as far as I was believing, if Favre played his first seasons with the Packers, and played 18 seasons to date, how were only 16 of them in GBay? Wouldn't that be 17 in GB, and 1 in NY?

    Nope. Favre was originally drafted by Atlanta and spent his first year there as a backup to the immortal Chris (every joint in body is inflamed) Miller. He was acquired in a trade by Green Bay the next year in yet another steal orchestrated by former GM Ron Wolf. And the rest, as they say, is history.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Thanks for straightening that out RaMarkable.

    I was having one of those days where, even though I usually just look up things and try to figure them out myself, I just didn't care to. I'm sure I would have seen that he was drafted somewhere else, and should have known that. He just isn't on my top 50 favorite football players list, and I really never cared for him.

    But, thanks for putting the light where it needed to be.

    The word is concerning FavRA's poor play down the stretch last season was that he had an injured shoulder.

    Regardless.....I hope he stays home.

    Freaking Ground Hog Day!! This topic never dies each year. Madden retired because he could no longer make Brett Favre references, so if Brett comes back maybe Madden will too? JK, both should stay retired, please...and it will be a good day when we no longer wonder each year if BF will be playing or where...
