Brett Favre: 'Twenty Years And I'm Done'

Brett Favre announced his return for the 2010 season Wednesday afternoon, following a practice with the Vikings. It's practically become an annual summer tradition: Memorial Day leads into July 4th which is followed by Favre Decision Day (Aug. 18) as camps open and the warmer weather begins to wane. But no more.

In his wordy speech to the gathered media on Wednesday, Favre took the time to say that 2010 will be his final year in the NFL.

"Twenty years and I'm done," Favre said. "This is the last year of my contract. I'm sure a lot of people will say, 'Yes!' I'll give it one more try and regardless how it ends I'll leave on top."

Sounds familiar.
