Jets owner supports a return for Favre

Jets owner Woody Johnson publicly supports the return of embattled QB Brett Favre, according to the New York Post.

Favre looked like an MVP candidate for the Jets during the team’s five-game winning streak in the middle part of the season. But the Jets, and Favre in particular, faltered down the stretch, losing four of their final five games to miss the playoffs.

The Jets fired coach Eric Mangini, but now Johnson would like to see Favre return for one more season in New York.

    “I’m not going to bully them,” Johnson said, “but I like [Favre], and I think we can win with him.

    “I’m only looking at it from a football standpoint. I want to win games.”

Kellen Clemens, the Jets’ second-round draft pick in 2006, was Favre’s backup this season. He likely would be the starter if Favre retires.
