Brett Favre retires, again â€“ do you believe him? Favre, the famed quarterback best known for his decades long stint with the Greenbay Packers was most recently in the Minnesota Vikings uniform. Showcasing that he still had it in him, he almost lead the Vikings to last yearâ€™s Super Bowl. Such would have been an awesome end to his career â€“ leading his former teamâ€™s arch nemesis to the Super Bowl. Oh well. That didnâ€™t happen.
So now, Favre is hanging up his NFL jersey and retiring. He is giving up a $13 million contract in doing so.
Many do not believe that Favre is actually going through with the whole retirement thing.Â The 40 year old quarterback has been one of the leagueâ€™s greatest. With the #1 overall draft pick, also a quarterback, snatching a $50 million contract â€“ many think Favre is just trying to get more money.
After all, the $50 million man likely wonâ€™t set foot on a field this year. Favre will. We will just have to see how this all pans out.
