Report: Jets Wouldn’t Mind If Favre Retired

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and GM Mike Tannenbaum have reportedly “indicated privately” that they’d be OK with Brett Favre retiring in 2009. Jets brass has said the total opposite publicly. “I think Woody and Mike are upset (with Favre’s late-season play)…especially Woody,” a source told the Newark Star-Ledger. “They’re not going to say publicly they don’t want Favre back, but privately I’m not so sure.” The Jets want Favre to make a decision before they sign their new coach to a contract.
