It'll be interesting to learn what happened here. I can't believe the two teams were that far apart in terms of compensation.

What happened was the Bucs were used.  Let's get realistic here, The Packers did not want to have to play Favre.  The Packers wanted the Jets all along.  NFLN said just before the deal was announced that the Buccaneers had called the Pack repeatedly yesterday but the Pack never called back.  The "7th to 4th" round offer was our first offer.  You never come out with your best offer, because that is how you overpay.  Bruce Allen would've sweetened the deal had the Packers negotiated with us.

Now where did the reports of Griese and a 3rd to 2nd come from?  Maybe the Packers?  What was the Jets first offer?  The trade happened late so you know there was a back and forth all day long.  The Packers used the Bucs to get the Jets to overpay.  The Packers were never going to trade with the Bucs unless Favre said 100% no to playing for the Jets.
