10,000 FANS AND 100 MEDIA MEMBERS SHOW UP AT BRETT FAVRE’S FIRST JETS PRACTICE

Fans were packed “ten deep” at practice for the New York Jets today. The occasion marked the first appearance of Brett Favre in a Jets jersey (albeit a red practice jersey.) An estimated crowd of over 10,000 and 100 media members were at Jets practice today. In the past the team’s practices have drawn about 2,000 fans.

Coach Eric Mangini has already announced that Favre is the Jets starting quarterback. That’s not surprising. What is moderately surprising is that the Packers Jets legend will see game action in New York’s preseason game next weekend.
