Quarterback Brett Favre, who led the Green Bay Packers to two Super Bowls but was traded to the New York Jets last season after a bitter breakup with the Packers, told the Jets this morning that he is retiring from the National Football League.But wait!
ESPN.com, which first reported the story, said Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, informed the Jets of Favre's decision this morning.
At NFL.com, reporter Adam Schefter reached Cook. Cook was asked whether this retirement was for good or whether Favre could change his mind this summer.It's like the OJ Simpson trial - it never ends, and I can't stop watching!
Cook responded to Schefter: “For good.”
However, ESPN reported that Cook raised the possibility of the Jets releasing Favre. There has been speculation that Favre was interested in joining the Minnesota Vikings.
