Could Brett Favre be taking a bite of the Big Apple?

That's funny, because apparently, he should have been a Jet in the first place:
The Jets had a deal with the Cardinals to move up two slots ahead of the Falcons in the 1991 draft so general manager Dick Steinberg could grab their quarterback of the future.

"We were going to pick Brett Favre," Ron Wolf said by phone Tuesday night from his Jupiter, Fla., home. Wolf, who retired in 2001, is well known as the Packers general manager who acquired Favre and built a Super Bowl champion, but before he worked in Green Bay he was an assistant in the Jets' front office. He pushed hard to draft Favre in 1991.

"But when it came time for the Cardinals' pick, they told us the guy they wanted [defensive end Mike Jones] was on the board, so they didn't do the deal," Wolf said. "They picked their guy, the Falcons picked Brett Favre, and that was it."

Good luck, Brett - it'd be a good fit, and a hell of a story. But beware...

...because when you're a Jet...
