1. TE Jermaine Gresham is visiting the Arizona Cardinals this week. Gresham is a free agent following a 5-year stint with the Cincinnati Bengals. The visit is likely a result of the retirement of Cardinals TE John Carlson earlier this offseason.
2. QB Brett Favre (pronounced as if the ‘r’ is in front of the ‘v’…for some reason) was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame today. Here is his preparation speech for the one he will give when he is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year (the speaking begins at the 3:23 mark): Brett Favre Packers HOF Induction Speech. Just for the record, the guy on the field with Favre at the beginning of the speaking said that the fans said, “Welcome back, it’s glad to have you back.” What is glad to have you back? The fans are but they are clearly not “ITs”. FANS ARE PEOPLE TOO MAN, and I don’t see YOU Brett Favre-ing it up at the QB position, so what makes you cooler than THE FANS!? It’s WE’RE glad to have you back. Anyway, Favre spent 16 seasons with the Packers, a season before with the Atlanta Falcons, and had a ‘will he, won’t he’ retirement saga following his time as a Packer, during which he played for the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings. Favre will be eligible for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year and he will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
That’s all for TheHaysWay today, have a pleasant tomorrow.
