    I have heard that the Packers have dedicated much of their extra cash, mush of which was Brett's previous salary, to provide contract extensions for some of their core veteran, and emerging younger players.

    Face it, as a very young team littered with talent, we are going to start having to pay for it as these emerging players (Grant, Jennings, etc.) blossom, and established vets such as Tauscher are rewarded.

    Food for thought.........

    Interesting, the easy way out is to just release him.
    Sounds like Brett is ok with that, so why not?

    If they needed the money to sign key players they could've just ask Favre to restructure his contract. He said he was willing to do it for Randy Moss...

    Hmmm don't buy that one.. we have 30 million plus in cash reserves and after the draft picks sign.. we will still have 16 million in cap room after Brett's salary is added to the cap.

    Unless I am mistaken in my interuptation of the cap and its allocations.

    Not to mention.. the Cash Cow Brett is for merchandising and additional revenue..

    Plus there's a rule for having too much money available under the cap and the Packer's are pretty close. If they let Favre go they might even have to sign a couple players to reach the minimum cap expenditures.

    The thing is, we don't have a Randy Moss. What is a Randy Moss? Best player in the NFL at his position.
