Does Brett Favre Want Out of Green Bay?

The Green Bay Packers left Brett Favre fuming when they didn't pull off a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss during the N-F-L draft.

But was the three-time M-V-P angry enough to ask his way out of Green Bay?

Amid public grousing from Favre about the state of his team over the weekend, a report on the Fox Sports Web site, citing anonymous sources, says Favre's agent called Packers general manager Ted Thompson to request a trade a few days after last month's draft.

According to the report, Packers coach Mike McCarthy later called the quarterback and was able to calm his anger, getting Favre to admit that he didn't really want to play elsewhere.

In a statement posted on the Packers' Web site, general manager Ted Thompson says he will not address the report's specifics but understands the frustration Favre vented in interviews over the weekend.

Other Packers officials and Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, did not return telephone messages from The Associated Press today.
