That's according to "a person we talked to", the 'we' being Kevin Seifert of the NFC North blog over at ESPN.com, who has actually been doing excellent work this month. (But note to Kevin: Please retire the use of the royal 'we'). Is it credible? Who cares anymore. At this point, I could see a headline that said "Favre traded to Montreal Alouettes for a case of Moosehead" and I wouldn't blink twice. Besides, Seifert works for ESPN. I work for an alternative asset management company. I'm sure his sources are better than mine.
Most of the trade scenarios I've heard floated have involved either a mid-level pick that could rise as high as a second rounder if Favre plays well, to a you-must-be-dreaming scenario of the Vikings offering one of the Williams' defensive tackles AND a pick. That, my friends, will never happen. But a third round pick and Chester Taylor? That at least is in the realm of possibility, and would perhaps entice Alan Herman to shut his face, as he is STILL barking into the phone about Ryan Grant's contract to any reporter who calls.
