Traded or a traitor? Many Packers fans find themselves struggling with that question when they see footage of Green Bay's future Hall of Famer practicing in a Jets jersey.
Favre is the latest in a long list of athletes who after achieving iconic status in one city, finished their career in another. Also on that list: Broadway Joe Namath, Johnny Unitas, and Bobby Orr, just to name a few.
Minnesota fans know what it feels like to see a city's superstar don another jersey having watched Kevin Garnett hoist a championship trophy with the Celtics earlier this summer.
But who are some other Minnesota legends that finished their careers elsewhere? I'd love to compile a top ten list.
Harmon Killebrew finished his career as a Royal
cris carter as a dolphin....
alan page as a bear.....carl eller as a seahawk....it seldom ends well in the nfl....
The NFL does seem to encourage this sort of thing. I just thought of another: Randall McDaniel playing his last two years as a Buccaneer.
