Brett Favre to Retire

August 3, 2010

Will he or won’t he? It’s been the most famous question since “to be, or not to be?” Now it appears that we have the answer.

According to multiple sources this morning, Brett Favre has told the Minnesota Vikings that he will not play in the 2010 season.

So what do you think? Is this the real deal? Will Brett change his mind next week. I’ll tell you what, with all his flip flopping, he’d make a great politician. I think that’s his next profession once he hangs them up!

From ESPN:

Favre has sent text messages to teammates saying, “This is it,” league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Neither Favre nor the Vikings have confirmed the news but a press release is expected Tuesday, the sources said.

The Associated Press also reported that Favre is saying that he’s not returning this season.

This would be the third retirement for Favre, who also retired after 16 seasons with the Green Bay Packers after the 2007 season and one season with the New York Jets after the 2008 season.

The 40-year-old Favre has been working out at his home in Hattiesburg, Miss., still rehabbing a surgically repaired ankle that was injured in Minnesota’s overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC title game. He has yet to inform the team if he will honor the second year of his contract and come back for another run at the Super Bowl.
