Brett Favre, the soon to be Hall of Fame quarterback, is leaking the news that he will NOT be coming back to the Vikings for the 2010 season.
The Star Tribune in Minneapolis is reporting that Favre will not return for a second season, ending his career after a bitter loss to the Saints in the NFC Championship Game last January.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the team had not made an official announcement. The person says the 40-year-old Favre called coach Brad Childress to say his injured ankle is not responding as well to surgery and rehabilitation as he had hoped.
Favre began telling Vikings officials late Monday that he would retire for the third time, NFL sources told the newspaper, which added that Vikings officials and Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, did not returns calls seeking comment.
