In case you missed it, Peter King had a piece where he asserted Brett Favre would retire. Favre doesn't want surgery, and the Jets want him to participate in offseason workouts. And that's straight from the horse's mouth, as Woody Johnson said on New York radio.
You want to know how many offseason programs Brett Favre has ever participated in?
"I've never been in a [full] offseason program," Favre said to King in December.
During his recent offseason retirement decisions, most media reports meant nothing as it seemed the quarterback changed his mind multiple times. But if the Jets seriously want him to move to New Jersey full-time and put more time into the game than he has in 16 years, that isn't happening.
He's not coming back. Johnson sounded resigned to that. and the way he looked at the end of the season, Kellen Clemens or Brett Ratliff would be just as successful as the starter. And at a fraction of the cost.
*Oh, and Herman Edwards is going to be joining ESPN in a role that many Jets fans think he's been for eight years: a talking head. He should be great in that role though. Let's see what he'll say about the Jets. He's too classy to say anything overtly negative, but he'd have different perspectives on some players both with the Jets and within the division.
