GM Hurney Dismissed Talk of Favre in Carolina

Delhomme and Hurney

Panthers GM Marty Hurney is speaking out about the rumor that Brett Favre’s agent threw out that his client may want to play again in 2008 – for the Carolina Panthers. The rumor was thrown out Wednesday, the day that the story broke that Favre wanted to come back and play again, putting the Packers between the biggest rock and hard spot they have ever been.

Hurney said the following about the rumor: “I don’t know where these things come from.” Guess that means that the Panthers GM, as of yet anyway, has not spoken to anyone connected to Favre about the chance of him coming to Carolina in 2008. As it stands, the Panthers seem fine with giving QB Jake Delhomme a shot at trying to come back off of Tommy John surgery and giving it a go at close to 100 percent.

On Thursday we threw out a few teams we thought may have an interest in Favre, and while the Panthers were on the list, we thought it was somewhat of a long shot. Still heading the list includes the Buccaneers, Bears, Jets, and even the Eagles, who would of course have to make a major move with current QB Donovan McNabb to make something like that happen.

For now, Favre still maintains that all the hoopla that came out about him on Wednesday is just a rumor, but where there is smoke there’s fire, so look for there to be a lot more, one way or another, coming out this week when everyone returns from their holiday weekend.
