REPORT: PACKERS, JETS IN “SERIOUS TALKS” Posted by Michael David Smith on July 31, 2008, 8:53 p.m. EDT The Green Bay Press-Gazette is reporting that the New York Jets are in serious talks with the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre’s agent about a trade that would send Favre to the Big Apple. In fact, there’s actually a headline right now on the Press-Gazette web site reading, “All But Over: Favre to Go to Jets (It’s Over: Favre traded to Jets)” although there’s no story under that headline, and it has the appearance of something that was mistakenly put up by an overzealous web producer. (UPDATE: That headline has now been removed.) However, there’s no mistaking that the Press-Gazette is reporting that the Jets “have shown a growing interest” in Favre, and they now appear to be the favorites to land him. Favre was reportedly planning to fly from Mississippi to Green Bay this evening, but he has apparently now canceled those plans.
