Brett Favre Has No Plans Of Playing Football, Says His Agent

Brett Favre's agent, apparently tired of hearing rumors that his client is considering another NFL comeback, called his local paper to "set the record straight." Hattiesburg-based agent Bus Cook told the Jackson, Mississippi-based Clarion-Ledger this:

"Brett Favre retired in January. He has not talked to any teams, including Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks. He has not talked to anyone about playing football. He’s retired, period."

Speculation heated up over the weekend that Favre was considering yet another comeback when Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told the Twitter-verse that he would be "honored to have Brett Favre as a backup." Cook claimed the tweet had no basis in fact.

Favre, of course, has twice retired only to come back each time, first to play for the New York Jets and then with the Minnesota Vikings. Each time he was considerably more effective than most reasonable observers expected. In 2009, he threw for 4,202 yards and 33 touchdowns, better numbers than he'd posted in more than a decade. Last year, he was considerably less effective, throwing 19 interceptions and just 11 touchdowns while battling injuries.
