    From ESPN's main page:

    Report: Favre Traded To Jets

    Brett Favre was reportedly traded to the New York Jets on Wednesday night. Foxsports.com reports the Jets will send a draft pick to Green Bay for the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

    this was talked about extensively on 810 sports (kc) today. apparently the commish was VERY involved in the process, making sure this was not the case. making sure a team wasnt going to get him for 2 draft picks and turn around and sell him to the vikings for 3 draft picks. (since the packers wouldnt trade him to MN directly)

    As Dinger said... I think the Commish will step in and make sure that this doesn't happen.

    I can't remember what the word was they used on ESPN last night, but there is a special rule that you can designate what a team does with a player once you trade him there.

    They were pretty sure that GB would have this clause put in that he couldn't be traded to any NFC North team after he was traded the first time.

    I think it is called a poison pill contract. GB can put something in the trade that if he plays more games in MN than NY that they get additional picks or cash from NY.
