Brett Favre is reportedly retiring

Brett Favre has decided to retire from the NFL after 17 seasons.

 

FOX Sports first reported Tuesday that the Green Bay Packers quarterback informed the team in the last few days. ESPN.com said that according to Favre’s agent the quarterback told coach Mike McCarthy of his decision.

 

The team did not immediately confirm or deny the report. An assistant to Packers general manager Ted Thompson said he was in meetings all day but would release a statement later Tuesday morning.

 

The news was a surprise to at least one of Favre’s teammates. Most players expected Favre to return after a successful 2007 season.

 

Does this news come as a surprise to you?
