MONTGOMERY, Al (WSFA) -- It was disappointing news for some Packers fans as their beloved quarterback for more than sixteen seasons was traded late last night. The Green Bay Packers have agreed to trade Brett Favre to the New York Jets but no specific details were released.

The Packers were in negotiations with the Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers since Favre's reinstatement earlier this week. It was evident that Favre's return to Green Bay was not in the team's best interest since they had decided to move forward with Aaron Rodgers as their starter.

The three time NFL MVP and Super Bowl-winning quarterback will now head to New York where fans are eagerly anticipating his arrival. The 38-year-old Favre holds most major NFL passing records and almost led the Packers to the Super Bowl again last year.

The arrival of Favre to New York is most likely the end to Chad Pennington's career with the Jets.
