While Brett Favre continues to ponder his NFL future, the Jets have released one of his old favorite targets.
Tight end Bubba Franks was let go Monday by New York after playing with the organization for one year. Franks caught six passes for 47 yards while serving primarily as a blocker.
Franks, who made three Pro Bowls earlier this decade in Green Bay, spent a few months on the free agent market before the Jets re-signed him in May.
Now Franks is free to join any team he wants again. Perhaps Favre could use his pull and get Franks a job with the Vikings.
That’s assuming, of course, Favre actually wants a job for himself.
