(Newser) – Brett Favre will be playing for the New York Jets this year, FOX Sports reports. The Green Bay Packers agreed to trade their longtime QB, who came out of retirement and set off a monthlong drama about where he'd play next. The Jets will reportedly give up a single draft pick, the value of which will depend on how they finish the season.
