More signs the Packers are serious about moving on

In some of the best news I’ve heard since “Favre-gate” started, it was reported today (I believe Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Setinel first broke the news) that the Packers are shopping Favre around.  It’s likely a sign that the team is worried that Brett Favre might actually report to training camp.  Word is they spoke to Baltimore so far as well as some other teams.  Sounds like the reasonable compensation is a 3rd round pick, maybe a player (definitely not a starter).  As everyone has said, Tampa is a spot with great potential for Favre.

So now the way this is probably going to play out is 1) Favre will have to show he is serious about playing and report to Green Bay (or do something to indicate he wants to play).  2) Favre will have to agree to play for whatever team the Packers have negotiated a deal with.  3) He will be gone before he ever gets a chance to put on his green and gold uniform.

To show a bit more comitment to the future, 7th round pick Matt Flynn, the QB from LSU, signed a contract today.  He’s probably going to be our #3 guy this year unless he has a fantastic preseason.
