Favre tells hometown paper he's leaning toward returning
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Comments Brett Favre made to his hometown newspaper indicate he's leaning toward returning to the Green Bay Packers for another season.
The Biloxi (Mississippi) Sun-Herald reports Thursday Favre says he isn't approaching Saturday's playoff game against Seattle like it will be his final game in Green Bay. He seems more optimistic than in years past about returning.
Favre's now-annual flirtation with retirement has taken on a life of its own in Wisconsin. He has taken weeks and even months in recent years to make his decision.
While it has been widely assumed that he would come back to play next season after having one of the best years of his career, Favre and Packers coach Mike McCarthy have said the quarterback would wait until after the season to address the issue.
Do you want Favre to return next season?
