Packers trade Brett Favre to N.Y. Jets

Headed to Broadway: Packers trade Brett Favre to N.Y. Jets

The Brett Favre era is officially over in Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers have confirmed they have traded the quarterback to the New York Jets. Favre had started the past 253 consecutive games for the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers did not release the terms of the trade. The Jets are believed to be sending a draft pick to the Packers, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, USA TODAY's sister publication.

Favre and the Packers have experienced a bitter divorce in the past two months since the quarterback, who retired in March, decided to unretire. The team was reluctant to take him back after it had embraced Aaron Rodgers as its next quarterback.
