Brett Clears the Air

In a 15 minute news conference prior to the start of this weekend's minicamp, QB Brett Favre had his say about the supposed trade rumor, his feelings about GM Ted Thompson, and other topics.

Bottom line: did not ask to be traded, was frustrated, has no problem with the direction the Packers are headed, says he has a good working relationship with Ted Thompson, and after 17 years in the league is bored with minicamps and just didn't want to come.
