Does Brett Favre Ever Plan On Retiring For Good?

Brett Favre has been in the NFL since I was 6 years old and has been with the Packers since 1992, but he has said he was retiring about 5 times now, but he always comes back for another year. Last year he said he was done, but he just faxed a letter to the NFL for reinstatement.

“It’s obviously the first step in Brett coming back, but we’ll deal with that once he is reinstated,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’ll definitely have a plan in order. … We’ll address everything, as far as the details about how Brett Favre fits into our future plans, when he arrives here in Green Bay.”

Once his reinstatement is approved by the league, which is expected to be a formality, the Packers have 24 hours to either release Favre or bring him back on the active roster. Packers general manager Ted Thompson has said the Packers have no plans to release Favre.

The Packers own Favre’s rights until his contract expires after the 2010 season.
