From the Twitter of the Minneapolis Star Tribune‘s Judd Zulgad, who originally broke the news:
- Favre is expected to issue a press release later today. Keep in mind this is Brett Favre and it is Aug. 3.
- I’m told Favre has said his ankle has simply not responded and that is why he won’t be back.
- There is a chance ownership will go back to Favre with an offer of more than the 13 million for this season.
- Yes, the Vikings are still practicing. Not clear if press release will be from Favre or Vikings.
- Keep in mind I’m hearing Vikings still feel the situation is fluid. As I said before still time to talk him out of it.
- I’m told this Favre story has crashed the Star Tribune website. Hopefully it comes back soon.
From the Twitter of the NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora:
- For me, personally, I will believe Brett Favre is retired when he files retirement papers. Until then, no door is truly closed
- If/when we’re deep into the season and Favre is in Mississippi and not Minnesota, then I’m fully convinced. Otherwise, I have to wonder…
- If he pulls a Roger Clemens at some point and still doesn’t QB them, eventually.
From the Twitter of ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
- Had Favre retired after season, Minnesota’s quarterback this season could have been Donovan McNabb, Jason Campbell or Marc Bulger.
From the Twitter of ESPN’s Mark Schlereth:
- Favre really done or is he the boy who cried wolf? I think he done this time for real!
