The Green Bay Press-Gazette, quoting a source close to the situation, is reporting a "bidding war" is going on between the Jets and Bucs to obtain Favre.

It also says Chris Simms could be something they are looking for to get in return.. doesnt make much sense to me

maybe the packers can get a 2nd rounder, 5th rounder and a D-line man out of one of these teams?

Why doesn't it make sense? He's a reliable backup and we have no qbs with a start in the NFL.

It would be nice to get some immediate impact out of one of these teams..at least a great special teamer along with a draft pick or something...

I'm hoping it's someone like Ryan Sims or Greg White and 3rd rounder for Favre.

This is from iambrettfavre's link also

I want to stress that I wouldn't bet my mortgage on this but it is what I've heard reliably. I hear the Jets are offering a solid third-round draft choice that could rise to a first-round draft choice depending on the team's performance and how well Favre plays.

I'm told the Bucs positively would not make an offer that lofty. The Packers have suggested a couple of different scenarios involving draft choices with Tampa Bay but I hear that the Packers are not close to doing anything tonight.

i cannot wait any longer.

all i want is a 2nd or a 3rd rounder, and a D-lineman

or i would do a 5th or 6th rounder and a GOOD D-lineman

Yeah I would do Jovan Haye straight up for Favre but I know that probably wont happen.

I propose a three way deal...

Bucs get....Favre
Cowboys get...a couple of Bucs draft picks
Packers get...three Cowboys cheerleaders...

Oh yeah...that is a deal I am down with...

I think it's going to be Favre to Tampa Bay. And Tampa will trade Garcia to Minny. I could really see that happening for some reason.
