Jets Just Fine w/ Any Decision Favre Makes

From: Newark Star Ledger

Nobody associated with the Jets is pressing Brett Favre to make a decision on his future, in part because they don’t want to be seen as the team that ran a future Hall of Fame quarterback out of town. But there are those, including owner Woody Johnson and general manager Mike Tannenbaum, who privately indicated they might be okay with any decision Favre makes — despite Johnson’s and Tannenbaum’s public pleas for Favre to return next season.

“I think they had to say that in case (Favre) wants to come back,” said a person with knowledge of the team’s thinking who requested anonymity because he’s not authorized to speak for the organization. “If Favre says he’s not coming back, I don’t know if that would be a great disappointment. … I think Woody and Mike are upset (with Favre’s late-season play) to a point, especially Woody. But I think they have to handle the situation with care. They’re not going to say publicly they don’t want Favre back, but privately I’m not so sure.”
