08:30 AM ET 04.29 | The Green Bay Packers made sure Brett Favre didn't get his wish last year when the future Hall of Fame quarterback decided he didn't want to retire after all and attempted to force his way to the archrival Vikings. But this year there will be nothing to stop Favre from wearing purple -- if that's what he truly wants. The New York Jets, who acquired Favre from the Packers last year, released him off the reserve/retired list on Tuesday. The 39-year-old Favre retired, again, after last season and in a statement issued by the Jets on Tuesday said he doesn't plan on coming back. For now. "[My agent] Bus [Cook] and Mike [Tannenbaum, the Jets general manager] have been talking about this for a while," Favre said. "Nothing has changed. At this time, I am retired and have no intention of returning to football." Of course, Favre never explains why he then asked for his release, and it's interesting the move comes days after the Vikings drafted playmaking wide receiver Percy Harvin in the first round.
