Favre A Buccaneer By The End Of The Week?

That's the "hunch" LA Times' columnist Sam Farmer has about how this whole Favre situation will mercifully end. (Roger Goodell is also anxious to resolve this. Sorry Packers. ) Farmer went on Dan Patrick's radio show and, although he couldn't state it as fact, said that the way things have played out and based on Jon Gruden's unabashed man-love of the gunslinger, it's a likely scenario. Either that, Farmer said, or Favre will crawl back into his Mississippi mud pit and re-retire.

The speculation about Favre heading to Tampa moved aroundplenty this week, but it has all been disregarded. (Of course) But if Farmer is to be trusted — and there's no reason not to at this point — it appears if Favre is going anywhere, it's the Bucs. For now.

Guess the conversations Favre has had with Gruden were all made on a pay phone.
