Best Answer

Favre had announced his retirement during the offseason, so the Packers drafted two new quarterbacks in the draft to back up Aaron Rodgers. When Favre changed his mind and wanted to come back, there was essentially no spot for him on the roster. When he forced the issue, the Packers traded his rights to the vikings. and from ther farve has been with with the viking since but this his his last yea rwith them
