PFW: Bucs Would Want Favre Deal Done Quickly

From: Pro Football Weekly

The way we hear it, the Bucs are serious about preparing a deal to acquire QB Brett Favre. Sources say Tampa Bay’s offer to the Packers for Favre is likely to include a second-round pick, one more draft choice or perhaps a player, as well. Bucs GM Bruce Allen would like to get something done sooner rather than later, perhaps within the next few days to avoided letting the distracting rumors linger and also to give Favre as much time as possible to learn the offense. Reports indicate the Packers are weighing their options but seem open to dealing their disgruntled star to Tampa. If Favre were to be traded to the Bucs, the Packers might acquire QB Chris Simms in return, sources say. Simms has asked to be traded or released, and he recently was asked by Allen for his opinion on whether Favre would be a good fit for the Bucs. A deal to acquire Favre might also spell the end of QB Jeff Garcia’s career in Tampa. The Bucs already have five quarterbacks on the roster and they likely would trade or release at least one if Favre were added to the mix. Garcia has voiced displeasure with his contract situation all offseason, and he could get a chance to go elsewhere with Favre on board.
