Don't count Bucs out of Favre sweepstakes

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

JACKSON, Miss. -- Still not completely believing the Bucs are out of the running for Brett Favre.

Although the Jets have been given permission to talk to Favre, who plans to report to Green Bay's training camp this weekend, this situation's not over and Tampa Bay could be a player.

This could be a way to drive up Favre's price tag. As one general manager told me earlier this week, the Bucs may be willing to give up the most for Favre.
