Roundup: Hall of Famer Hornung blasts Favre

Packers legend Paul Hornung told a crowd of supporters that Brett Favre will not be successful if he goes to Minnesota. Hornung addressed a crowd of Packers fans at the Marshview Conservation Club’s 10th annual sports banquet, reports the Green Bay Press Gazette:

    “(Favre) ain’t going to win in Minnesota,” Hornung told the crowd on Tuesday night. “I’ll bet on it.”

Hornung is the second member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame to take at aim at Favre during the offseason. In May, Hall of Fame QB Fran Tarkenton was critical of Favre’s flirtation with the Vikings.

Other news making its way around the Web on a Wednesday morning:

  • Ravens WR Mark Clayton is ready to step up in the wake of Derrick Mason‘s reported retirement.
  • Broncos WR Brandon Marshall has been told by the club to report with the rookies on July 27 — not an unusual move for players coming off injuries. Marshall had hip surgery during the offseason.
