Brett Favre has reportedly informed the Vikings that he will not return this season, presumably ending an unparalleled 19-season-career. Favre reportedly told Minnesota coach Brad Childress that his injured ankle is not responding as well to surgery as he had hoped.
The surefire Hall of Famer had one of his best seasons last year, with career bests in completion percentage (68.4), quarterback rating (107.2) and fewest interceptions (7), while throwing for 33 TDs and 4,202 yards to lead the Vikings to an NFC North title.
If reports of his retirement are true, this wouldn't be the first time Favre has called it quits. The 40-year-old signal-caller retired as a Packer after the 2007-08 season and as a Jet after the '08-09 campaign.
So, are you buying the reports that this is in fact the end of Favre's illustrious career? What are the percent chances that the notorious flip-flopper still finds himself behind center in the Vikings' opener at New Orleans on Thursday, September 9?
