Finally, Bret Favre will probably be leaving the game and this time I don’t think he’s coming back…
From ESPN: Without the tearful public ceremony that accompanied his retirement announcement from the Green Bay Packers just 11 months ago, quarterback Brett Favre has told the New York Jets he is retiring.
Favre had instructed his agent, James “Bus” Cook, to inform the Jets on Wednesday that he is retiring. The Jets confirmed the retirement in a statement, then discussed it with the media in a conference call.
Favre was expected to speak to the media in a conference call at 6 p.m. ET.
“We had an all-encompassing conversation,” owner Woody Johnson said of his discussion with Favre. “He told me at that point that he had made his decision to retire and thanked everybody and talked about what a great experience he had with the New York Jets.”
“I have great admiration for him as a player and a person. I wish him only the best in his life after football,” Ryan said.
Happy trails, Brett. What a career…
