GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -The Green Bay Packers have reached an agreement to trade quarterback Brett Favre to the New York Jets, the team announced late Wednesday night. Terms of the trade weren't immediately available.
The Packers had been talking with the Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers since deciding earlier this week that the team and the three-time MVP couldn't co-exist. The Packers decided to move forward with Aaron Rodgers as their starter after Favre announced his retirement in March.
Favre's agent, James ``Bus'' Cook, confirmed the deal in a text message to The Associated Press late Wednesday night.
The agreement first was reported by Fox Sports on its Web site.
