Packers paying attention to Jets finale

New York has a playoff spot riding on today’s game, while Green Bay has a first- or second-day draft pick riding on the game.

If New York beats Miami and advances to the playoffs, Green Bay will get a second-round pick from the Jets that could turn into a first-rounder if the Jets go to the Super Bowl.

If New York falls short of the playoffs and sees its season end, the compensation on the Brett Favre deal will be nearly complete. The Jets would send a third-round pick to the Packers.

But the compensation on the deal also would be contingent on whether or not Favre returns for the 2009 season. Here are the possibilities:

  • If Favre were to retire after this year, the Packers would be obligated to send back a late-round draft pick to the Jets.
  • If Favre retired after this season and the Packers get the Jets’ third-round pick, the Jets would get back the Packers’ seventh-round pick in 2010.
  • If Favre retired after this season and the Packers get the Jets’ second-round pick, the Jets would get back the Packers’ sixth-round pick in 2010.
  • If Favre retired after this season and the Packers got the Jets’ first-round pick, the Packers would send the Jets a fifth-round pick in 2010.
