Brett Favre: ‘No plans to play football’

Updated: December 8, 2011 12:20PM

Brett Favre likes retirement just fine.

Favre said on his website this week that he is not coming back to the NFL, even with injuries to quarterbacks around the league.

The statement said: “I’m enjoying retirement with my family and have no plans to play football. I haven’t contacted nor have I been contacted by any teams and all reports are inaccurate.”

The 42-year-old Favre retired in the offseason after a 20-year career and lives in Mississippi. The three-time MVP threw for more than 71,000 yards and 500 touchdowns, winning a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers. He retired with the Packers in 2008 and New York Jets in 2009 before deciding on a return with the Vikings.
