If Your Locker Smells of Dead Animal, You Might Be Brett Favre's Teammate

When the Jets were trying to finalize the Brett Favre trade, they had to spend a lot of time assuring Favre that he wouldn't be out of place in the big city. Splitting his time between Mississippi and Green Bay had kept him away from the urban jungle and the Jets had to pull out all the stops to convince him that he wouldn't have to alter his lifestyle too much.

One of the promises was that there was plenty of good hunting in New Jersey. Recently, Favre's teammate Eric Barton found out that Favre's making himself right at home. There appears to be plenty of good hunting in the Garden State, although I'm not sure if this is the preferred use of game.

Some teammates believe it was a wild turkey, but regardless, they all gathered around Barton's locker and engaged in fits of laughter. The dead animal was inside a bag that was filled with blood and guts.

"It definitely had the wow factor," said left guard Alan Faneca, whose locker is next to Barton's. "I've never had a dead animal brought into the locker room, so yeah, it's up there."

I wonder if Michael Vick ever thought of pulling such a prank to provide a little levity in the Atlanta Falcons locker room? I suppose not, as his actions had wow factor well beyond anything Favre ever pulled.
