Brett Favre Now a New York Jet

We’ll all be looking back on those years Brett Favre spent in a Green Bay Packers uniform as a bygone era. It was announced today that the legendary quarterback, who spent a few brief months enjoying his retirement from the NFL, has been traded to the New York Jets.

“We’re going to take this one year at a time,” Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said. “We’re excited to have Brett on the team this year.”

Favre will be wearing the No. 4 jersey for the Jets and apparently the item is already a hot-seller on eBay. As far as the Packers organization goes, well…they have to be relieved.

“Brett has had a long and storied career in Green Bay, and the Packers owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude for everything he accomplished,” the Packers said in a press release. “It is with some sadness that we make this announcement, but also with the desire for certainty that will allow us to move the team and organization forward in the most positive way possible.”

So…are you going to draft Favre on your fantasy football league?
