Barring a complete turn-around, there doesn't appear to be any way that Brett Favre will ever play for the Green Bay Packers again.
Both Favre and the Packers have drawn their line in the sand and the options appear to be quite clear for both.
Favre knows he won't play for the Packers, but he still wants to play. He's asked the Packers for permission to enter into talks with the Vikings and Bears but was denied. The Packers have tried unsuccessfully to work a deal with both the Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The following will need to happen to resolve this issue and remove the permanent cloud that shadows Lambeau Field.
Favre must either soften his stance on who he'll play for via trade. If not, the Packers will have to soften their stance on a deal with a division team. If neither one of those scenario's develop, then the Packers would have to eventually release Favre, or carry his $12-million salary on the active roster. The other option is that Favre could go back to the same spot he came from less than a week ago, Retirement!
