Jets to Give Favre More Time on Decision for 2009

Looks like the Jets are going to give Brett Favre more time than many thought to make his decision on if he is going to play or not in the 2009 season. Here is a report on that from today’s NY Post:

Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum revealed to The Post that, although the team would like to know by Feb. 27 (the start of the free-agent signing period) or sooner, the team has not given Favre any deadline to make a decision. Tannenbaum, who said he has spoken to Favre a couple of times since the end of the season, did indicate yesterday a more serious conversation about Favre’s future would take place in the next couple of weeks. However, it’s clear the Jets are not pressuring Favre. “Even though we may be speaking doesn’t necessarily mean a decision on his part needs to be final by the start of free agency,” Tannenbaum said. “We haven’t formulated any timetable. We’ll know more in next few weeks, but we haven’t had any dialogue [about his decision]. We have not set a hard and fast date.”
