Brett Favre addressed the media this afternoon (Friday) saying, "I did want to clear up this trade issue. A non-issue as I call it. Never was a trade ever mentioned, requested. I just don't know where it came from."
Favre was making reference to a report stating he had requested that the Packers trade him because of the team's inability to acquire Randy Moss in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. Moss was instead dealt to New England in a draft day trade.
Favre also said he's alright with Packers GM Ted Thompson and that he had no problem with the direction of the team.
As Favre enters his 17th NFL season, "I jsut really didn't want to come (to mini-camp)," which he referred to as "kind of boring to be honest with you."
As far as his relationship with his teammates, Favre said, "We're fine. I don't know what they say when they go home. You show me where I said anything about the guys I play with. I want you to show me. Not once did I say anything about the guys I play with. I want proof that I said something about the guys I play with. Never did I say that."
