The Packers Want This Brett Favre Thing To End Just As Much As You Do

It's reached that point. Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Packers' team president Mark Murphy boarded a plane late last night for Hattiesburg, Mississippi to visit Brett Favre now that he's officially faxed over his reinstatement letter to the league. According to the story, Murphy is trying to figure out a "peace agreement" that will hopefully bring some amicable closure to this messy ordeal which has dominated the headlines for the last few weeks. Bedard speculates that this is a final attempt to prevent any more distractions from the Packers from moving on with the Aaron Rodgers era. The Green Bay Press-Gazette seems to imply that Favre is now in the position to get anything he wants. So, maybe Favre heading to Minnesota isn't that far-fetched an idea any more? When Murphy meets with Favre's agent Bus Cook this morning, he'll try to attempt to broker some sort of deal that prevents Favre from showing up to training camp, but also gives them some options. However the way Favre's handled this thing so far, don't be surprised if his demands ultimately force Green Bay to release him and get nothing in return for him at all.
