Comments on: Is it safe to go outside now? Chicago Bears History Blog by Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:25:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: msnyder275 Thu, 12 Feb 2009 21:08:18 +0000 Its fairly safe that Favre won’t be playing for the Vikes, Bears or Lions – even if he does un-retire. Why?

The Jets hold his rights for two more years – to the tune of $13m per year. If they release him, a big chunk of that money hits their cap…money that they can’t afford. They’re desperate for cap space after last year’s free agent spending spree.

If they trade him to the NFC North, the Jets lose three first round picks…which no team will compensate after Favre’s performance last year.

So, Bears fans, if Favre does unretire, grab a six-pack and enjoy the stupidit…um…show. It will be quite entertaining and should have little impact on our season.

Favre loves the game so much and I just think come training camp and the dawning of a new season, he will yet again be reconsidering his decision.
