The New York Jets will have a legendary quarterback under center this upcoming season. The team made a trade late Wednesday night with the Green Bay Packers to acquire future Hall of Famer Brett Favre.

Favre was traded to the Jets with a 2010 conditional pick. In exchange, the Packers received a 2009 conditional pick.

“Brett has had a long and storied career in Green Bay, and the Packers owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude for everything he accomplished on the field and for the impact he made in the state,” Green Bay officials said in a statement. “It is with some sadness that we make this announcement, but also with the desire for certainty that will allow us to move the team and organization forward in the most positive way possible.”

According to the terms of the agreement, the 2010 conditional pick is a fifth-round pick if Favre retires after the 2008 season. Plus, the Packers get the Jets 2009 first-round draft pick.

It would turn into a sixth-round pick if the Packers get the Jets second-round pick. Or it would become a seventh-round pick if the Packers get the Jets’ third-round draft pick.

The 2009 conditional pick would be a first-round draft pick if Favre plays 80% of the plays and the Jets make the 2008 Super Bowl. It would turn into a second-round pick if Favre plays 70% of the snaps and the Jets make the playoffs.

Finally, it would become a third-round draft pick if he plays 50% of the snaps. Otherwise, the pick would turn into a fourth-round draft pick.

“I am looking forward to seeing Brett Favre in a New York Jets uniform,” Jets Chairman and CEO Woody Johnson said. “He represents a significant addition to this franchise and reflects our commitment to putting the best possible team on the field. Mike Tannenbaum and his football administration staff did a great job of navigating this complex process. I am excited about welcoming Brett, Deanna, and their family to the Jets organization.”
