What will Favre be traded for?

45 posts in this topic

I would guess a second round pick is what GB would settle for.

I don't think anyone will step up and give Green Bay much now. A week ago maybe. Green Bay is stuck with a tremendous PR problem right now and their worst nightmare just walked off the plane yesterday. Other teams know they are stuck as well and will play a waiting game to get him on the cheap. My guess is a 3rd rounder or lower (maybe even 2nd day pick) just to get him out of town. Green Bay is in a lose/lose situation here and I love it!!

I say it's about a 10-percent chance that he'll be traded.

3rd round pick at best at this point.

i'd say a 4th or 5th round pick...that would be the best scenario for both teams...whatever team gets him wants a veteran qb and GB say they don't want him so they could get a new young player.....any team that gives up more then a 4th is pretty dumb since he will only play another year or two....any team willing to trade for favre think they have a shot at a superbowl...thats the only reason to get the guy at this stage of his career.

I say that the Vikings will send Bollinger to the Packers and a 5th rounder in next years draft.

Throw in some Johnsonville Brats and you have a deal. They need to be the beer and cheese version of of the brats though.

I'd say it's NOW a 90 percent chance he'll be traded, released or RETIRE AGAIN!.... grin

3rd rounder still.

I'd say he's going to be release or traded. Check out this story.

Favre, Packers in stalemate

FROM NEWS SERVICES

If the Packers don't want him the only solution is to trade him away to the Vikings, otherwise they will just be continuing this sideshow … read more and causing further distractions for their team. Favre's mere presence is Green Bay is enough of a distraction as it is to the Packers. The possibility of trading to another team besides the Vikings seems highly improbable as Farve would most likely not report nullifying the trade and sending him back to the Packers. The Green Bay front office knows exactly what they have to do, but acknowledging it seems to be the hard part for them.

So Favre is unlikely to practice today, hoping the team will either release or trade him.

Favre spoke to ESPN's Chris Mortensen after last night's lengthy meeting with McCarthy and said the "best thing for this team is for us to part ways."

"We're at a stalemate," Favre said in a story posted on espn.com. "Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I'm here is because the commissioner [Roger Goodell] reinstated me so we have a lot of things to figure out. It's simple and complicated, both at the same time."

Favre told Mortensen that the team rejected his request to talk about a trade to a team within the NFC North. The Vikings appear to be the leading contender to acquire Favre, but were cleared by the NFL of tampering charges on Monday.

Favre admitted Aaron Rodgers is likely to be the team's starting quarterback under any circumstances.

"I'll practice my butt off, if it comes to that, and I think we all know what the end result will be, but this probably isn't going to work," Favre told Mortensen. "And I truly understand that if I was in Mike's shoes, I'd see it basically the same way he sees it, I'm sure. And I think if he was in my shoes, he'd see it my way. I think we both agree on that.

"They want to know if I'm committed but I want to know if they're 100 percent committed. The problem is that there's been a lot of damage done and I can't forget it. Stuff has been said, stories planted, that just aren't true. Can I get over all that? I doubt it."

The Packers have offered a $20 million package to Favre to remain retired, which he rejected.

"They can say they welcome me back but, come on, the way they've treated me tells you the truth," he told Mortensen. "They don't want me back, so let's move on. I don't know where it's headed. We'll see."

About 1# of Limburger cheese would be even-up.

Seriously, if the Vikes even consider him, they gave up too much. What would be the very best way for Farve to go out as a Packer?.... Go to the hated competition and pad his interception record...that is how!

Trade him to an AFC team with no OL, and put the ball back in Favres court. End of Debacle!!

Just because GB won't trade Favre to the Vikings doesn't mean another team can't. wink

I'd like to know what type of poison pill would have to be included in the deal to prevent another team from turning around and trading him to the Vikes. This could get interesting....

the best part is any team wanting to trade for favre is gonna need him to change his contract...if he says no then the team wanting him is screwed....i don't think he's gonna want less money to play for a team he doesn't even really want to play for in the first place.

he's talkin to the jets and bucs now...if they don't come to some sort of deal the packers are screwed...favre could just be messin with the idea to see what he's worth to other teams...but if he don't want to play somewhere them teams won't trade for him.

i just want this to end and see where he ends up...if he ends up a vike lets get it done...if he ends up somewhere else get it done.

All these posts on the issue, and nobody showing any love for T-Jack?!?!?!?

He's our quarterback and he's the one who will have a 75.3 passing rating this season. That's gotta mean something to you heartless fans! smile

Oh well...if anybody sees any purple #4 Favre jerseys let me know...even if he doesn't end up here (and he won't) I want to wear it when I visit my in-lawsin Wisconsin....and not take it off until I'm back in MN! grin

I think after today's announcement that the Pack simply won't allow him to compete for his old job that he will head back to Mississippi and call it quits. I don't think he ever imagined that it would come to this and I also don't think he will play for the Jets or Tampa. The Pack stood their ground (as dumb as that may be) and now this is all but over IMO.

The more I think about this it almost has to be a conditional pick based on how Favre does.

No team is going to give up a 2nd round pick only to have Favre decide he's retiring again in week 3.

So I'm guessing something like a 3rd rounder if he plays X amount of games and 5th rounder if he doesn't meet some criteria.

According to Mort it's a conditional 4th round Pick that could go as high as a 1st rounder if the Jet's make the Super-Bowl.

I would like to see them now turn around and trade him to the vikes. That would really mess with GB, thinking he is out of there hair, just to return to the same division.

    • Good luck.  Hope your efforts pay off.
    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
