Favre Retires From NFL…Again…And "This Time I Mean It," He Thinks
(NEW YORK, February 12) -- New York Jets quarterback Brett Farve announced yesterday that he was retiring after 18 seasons in the NFL. The announcement came less than a year after Farve’s previous retirement announcement while with the Green Bay Packers, which in turn came after having spent the past several offseasons contemplating retirement, only to wind up returning to the team each year.
Farve dispelled any notion that he might attempt another comeback within the next few months, telling reporters that his decision was absolutely final. "And this time I mean it."
