Favre a no-show to Packers camp

July 27, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Brett Favre did not report to the Green Bay Packers' training camp today, easing tensions in the three-time MVP's ongoing standoff with the team.Favre tells si.com that Packers general manager Ted Thompson has asked him for "a couple of days" to resolve the situation.

That agreement, presumably, would be a trade. The New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have emerged as two potential trade partners for the Packers, and Favre tells si.com that he would consider a trade to any team.

Packers players were scheduled to attend meetings and take physicals today. Players, coaches and Thompson are not scheduled to meet with reporters until after the Packers' first practice tomorrow morning.
