“"Brett Favre is a Hall of Fame player, but he is also a Hall of Fame person. Brett, [his wife] Deanna and his family will always be a part of the Jets family," Johnson said. "When we acquired Brett, we knew we would get everything he had. He took the time to mentor younger players and his competitiveness and enthusiasm at practice and during games was contagious," Tannenbaum said. "I spoke with him this morning and told him that he will be a friend of the Jets for years to come and it was an honor to work with him." Jets teammate Leon Washington also felt honored to have played with Favre.
My time with the Jets was short, but I'm honored to be given that chance.” -- Brett Favre
