Brett Favre comeback: Maybe, but not with the Packers

Brett Favre comeback: Maybe, but not with the Packers Yet another twist in the story football fans may be getting tired of - the Brett Favre comeback. According to the AP, quoting excerpt from Fox News show "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" the retired Green Bay Packers quarterback is contemplating a comeback but not with the Packers. Brett Favre told Great Van Susteren that he understands the team wants to move one, following his March retirement announcement, but in that case - they should let him go. "Them [Green Bay Packers] moving on does not bother me. It doesn't. I totally understand that. By me retiring March 3rd, I knew that could possibly happen. All I was saying is, you know, I'm thinking about playing again," Favre was quoted. Packers general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy wouldn't discuss the possibility of trading Favre and said they hadn't received any trade inquiries as of Saturday.

 How big is the Brett Favre comeback story - big enough for the online sportsbook BodogSports to post special odds on the outcome. Favre remains favorite to be brought to camp with the Packers at 5/4 odds, trading the famous quarterback pays out on 7/5 and the odds on Favre to be released by the Packers are sitting on 2/1. What team's roster will Brett Favre be on for the first game of the NFL season? Other than the Packers (at 8/5), the bookie says Baltimore Ravens and backs it up with 5/1 odds, while Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears follow, both at 11/2.
