Ed Werder and Chris Mortensen, both of ESPN.com, report Jets QB Brett Favre has instructed his agent, James “Bus” Cook, to inform the team today that he plans to retire. In an email to Werder, Favre indicated he had no regrets about finishing his career with the Jets rather than with the Green Bay Packers.
“Mike and Woody, as well as the entire organization, have been nothing short of outstanding,” Favre said. “My teammates – Thomas and Kerry included – were a pleasure to play with. Eric (Mangini) could not have been any better. I enjoyed playing for him. My time with the Jets was short, but I’m honored to be given that chance.”
