STATEMENT FROM QUARTERBACK BRETT FAVRE:

I was frustrated a couple weeks back when Randy Moss was traded to New England. I never wanted to be traded and I don’t want to be traded. I want to be in Green Bay. I want to finish my career as a Packer. Sometimes when I get frustrated I let my emotions get the better of me.

As I said in February when I announced that I was coming back, I am excited about the young talent on our team and the improvements we’re going to see from one year to the next. I really enjoy the young guys I’m playing with. I’m working hard down in Mississippi right now, rehabbing, and I plan to be in the best shape of my life.

I look forward to playing with this team and seeing what we can do. I think we can be pretty good.
