New York Newsday: If Brett Favre wants to play another year with
the Jets, he'll have to work a lot harder to win over his
teammates than he did this season. "There was a lot of resentment
in the room about him," a Jets player told Newsday yesterday. He
requested anonymity because team owner Woody Johnson has stated
publicly that Favre is welcome to return next season if he wants
to. (Favre reportedly will take until the end of February to
decide about returning.) The 39-year-old QB is not as welcome with
his teammates, according to this veteran. After the Jets traded
for Favre Aug. 6, the sure Hall of Famer made no effort to
ingratiate himself with the already assembled team, the veteran
said. He said Favre spent most of his down time at the practice
facility in an office specially designated for him near the
equipment room, not with teammates in the locker room, even after
the media departed. "He never socialized with us, never went to
dinner with anyone," the player said. Asked to describe Favre in a
word, he said: "Distant."
