GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - 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.
Only two years removed from perhaps his worst season, Favre had
a resurgence in 2007. He broke several career records. Among them
was Dan Marino's career mark for career touchdown passes. He
powered the Packers to an NFC North title and a 13-3 regular-season
record. He was named to his ninth Pro Bowl.
