Brett Favre...Once Again

As of this afternoon, Brett Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, Jr., sent a letter to the Green Bay Packers organization to request his full release from the team. Apparently, Favre had a conference call with GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy on Tuesday about a comeback, the Packers tried to convince Brett to remain retired, and he wasn't having it.

This is a climatic moment in this situation. After my rather lengthy report on the situation, most of it now seems to be a moot point, but maybe I'm jumping to conclusions and the saga will come to an end with Brett still honoring his retirement announcement. It just doesn't seem likely.

I'm just going to say that it would seem to me that the Baltimore Ravens have to be the leading suitor for Favre right now. If he doesn't end up with them, I'd be shocked because it's a good fit, and it would be the team that would probably least alienate him from the Packer faithful. If he winds up in Minnesota or Chicago, it's not going to be pretty.

Time to watch the story unfold and find out what is going to happen in the near future.
