Could it really be? No, it couldn’t be. Could Brett Favre’s career finally be over? Has he filed retirement papers before? What does filing retirement papers even mean? Will ESPN devote a 24 hour special to Favre being “like a kid out there”? So many questions need to be answered. For now, let’s handle what we know.
Two sources told FOXSports.com on Monday that Favre has already filed his retirement papers with the NFL, just weeks after the end of his 20th season.
While he could still change his mind, as he did in the 2008 and 2009 offseasons, there is no indication Favre will return. The 41-year-old quarterback stated 2010 was his final season after rejoining the Vikings in August and reiterated that intent throughout an injury-plagued campaign.
Of course, more details to come. Unfortunately.
