Childress: Vikes, Pack haven't talked trade
Posted Aug. 04 at 05:14 AM
The Vikings say they haven’t talked to the Packers – at all – about a trade involving Brett Favre.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that the teams talked last week, but Minnesota coach Brad Childress says that’s not true. “We haven’t had any contact with them,” Childress says today at the website of the StarTribune.com.
If Favre is going to switch teams, it likely will happen this week – he would need time to learn a new offense and get used to working with new teammates. Or, maybe the Packers truly have had a change of heart and are going to welcome him back.

I live in Minnesota and it's very hard to get a feel for witch way this will go. I'm sure there's lots of lying going on. Childress is a snake and you can't trust anything he says.

So is Ted Thompson...I'll bet they can have one heck of a conversation.

They're playing poker. Favre wants to play for the Vikings, the Packers want anything but that. The Packers are threatening to keep Favre as a second stringer, keeping him from playing and hoping Favre folds and agrees to a NY Jets or Bucs trade. But the caveat is it'll cost them $10 mil to do so and create strife if Favre calls the bluff. The Pack would also like compensation. But Favre or course wants to play really, really bad. The Packers were basically free to do as they please with Favre out of camp but now that he's there I expect he'll be on a different team this week. Vikings most likely, Jets or Bucs maybe a 25% chance each. They're probably checking with the Vikings right now to see if they can get any compensation - but they could out-right cut him, too. What a circus!
