Veteran Milwaukee Journal Sentinel scribe Bob McGinn, who has one of the sharpest football minds out there, reports that Green Bay has had contact with Minnesota about a trade even with Brett Favre arriving in Green Bay Sunday. Yes, even with the Packers saying they will have a quarterback competition involving Favre and Aaron Rodgers. You know, kind of like the thing the Bears have going on here.
It's an interesting read and certainly another twist in the story that has to have a few twists left to it, right?
McGinn quotes an unnamed personnel source about the possibility of other NFC North teams vying for Favre's services.
"The Bears say they're not interested,'' the source said. "The Bears just kind of are what they are. I don't see him in Detroit, either. At least the Vikings' offense is what he's used to. Old dogs don't learn new tricks, especially in three weeks.''
Didn't we know that when Denny Green said the Bears "are who we thought they were?"
