Favre traded to Jets

The Green Bay Packers agreed last night to trade quarterback Brett Favre to the New York Jets, a final surprising twist to a football soap opera that already had been full of them.

The Jets apparently outbid the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the three-time NFL MVP, who retired in March but changed his mind in recent weeks. According to one source close to the trade talks, the Jets surrendered a fourth-round draft pick that can increase in value, potentially all the way to a first-round choice, based on the performance of Favre and his new team this season.
