What could Have Been?


Recommended Posts

In the 1991 draft, Jets general manager Dick Steinberg, backed up by then-assistant Ron Wolf, had a trade in place with the then Phoenix Cardinals to leapfrog over Atlanta from the seventh pick of the second round to the fifth with the intention of selecting Favre.

"But when it came time for the Cardinals' pick, they told us the guy they wanted was on the board, so they didn't do the deal," Wolf recalled. "They picked their guy [DE Mike Jones], the Falcons picked Brett Favre, and that was it." The Jets selected Browning Nagle.

Then Wolf became Green Bay's GM and traded with the Falcons for Favre. The rest is history.
