After recently buying Bills tickets to the game at the Jets this December I was expecting to see the Bills defense pick apart Chad Pennington or Kellen Clemens. Now, it seems I may be getting more than I bargained for as the recent spate of Brett Favre news is saying the Jets have become the front-runner in a trade for the Hall of Famer because they are offering a better deal than the Buccaneers. I know we've discussed this before but this is coming down to the last 24 hour cycle before a Favre trade is expected (as he needs to be at training camp this week). How much more of a contender can we expect the Jets to be if they do indeed pick up Brett and is our secondary, in my opinion the weakest link in our defense, up to the challenge of stopping him and the not so bad Jets receivers.
Here is a snippet from rotoworld.com regarding the potential deal:
According to his agent, Brett Favre is willing to play for both the Jets and the Buccaneers. Favre appears resigned to a trade and hopes one is completed by Thursday, so he can get into training camp with his new team. His agent said that he could not see a scenario that involved Favre not playing football this season. The Jets may now be the frontrunners if they are truly offering a much better package, although we're sure that Favre will have a voice in the final decision.
It seems to me that even if the Bucs did win the Favre deal, that would probably end up sending Garcia to the Jets anyway.
