Packers not shocked by Favre's move to rival Minnesota

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett has a warning for Brett Favre: He will be looking for you.

Barnett had a little fun with Favre returning to the NFL to play for the rival Vikings. Hamming it up for cameras, Barnett said he respects Favre but can't wait to hit him: "I want to get a nice little shot on you, Brett. I said it. Put it on the bulletin board."

Favre was at Vikings training camp Tuesday. No one in Packers camp was surprised, given a summer's worth of rumors and the quarterback's notoriously shaky relationship with retirement.

Favre's former Green teammates and coach Mike McCarthy didn't seem surprised by the apparent move, and most of them just shrugged it off.
