Packers considering Favre trade to division rival

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- It looks like the Green Bay Packers are considering trading Brett Favre to a division rival.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Thursday that Packers officials have had internal discussions about trading Favre to the Minnesota Vikings or Chicago Bears as a "last resort" to settle the ongoing controversy.

Favre retired in the spring but now says he wants to play. The Packers say they've moved on and Aaron Rodgers is their quarterback.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson said earlier this week that he wouldn't consider trading Favre to an NFC North division rival.

But with Favre ready to show up for training camp, it looks like the team might give him what they suspect he's wanted all along: A one-way ticket to Minnesota.
