Update: Looks like Favre's burning desire to play is not so scalding after all, as it is reported he is seriously considering staying retired for this cash payout. What a joke.
WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) in Milwaukee reported that during the meeting, Murphy presented Favre and Cook with an offer in which the Packers would compensate Favre in the area of $20 million over the next 10 years in order to remain retired.Are you kidding me? They are trying to protect his "legacy." But lets be honest here, this is a giant clusterfuck and his legacy is big time tarnished now. Apparently he won't even meet with the Jets or Bucs, likely in an attempt to avoid getting traded to them. He wants to return to a contender and to be released from the Packers. Should have thought of these things before you signed the long term contract, Brett, and hey, maybe retiring and changing your mind, TWICE, isn't the best move either.
So now he is going to be a baby and perhaps force the Packers to trade him to a division rival. Nothing says legacy like walking into Lambeau this season wearing another team's uniform.
Mark my words here, karma will prevail. Favre will start for another team this year, but he is going to get knocked out. His streak will be gone and so will his health. Just watch.
