HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -Brett Favre has a date for his first start with the New York Jets.
Favre tossed his first pass with his new team in front of an overflow crowd at New York's practice facility and coach Eric Mangini said he will start the Jets' preseason game next Saturday at the Meadowlands.
Favre completed a short 10-yard pass to Chris Baker near the beginning of Jets practice at their facility in Long Island. The 7,000-plus fans gave the iconic QB a standing ovation when he took the practice field and cheered again when he hooked up with the tight end.
Favre was acquired from Green Bay late Wednesday night and his first practice attracted more than double the usual crowd.
New York hosts the Washington Redskins in its second preseason game.
