So says Pro Football Talk, according to an anonymous source. Probably the same anonymous source that told Florio that Favre was retiring two years ago... According to this source, Favre was presented with three possible teams he could be traded to, and he declined each one. (My guess? The Bills, the Ravens and the Chiefs)
I'm sure this will put the matter to rest. (THAT, dear readers, is called sarcasm.)
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
