The Jets have released Brett Favre from the Reserve/Retired list. Had you forgotten about him so soon?
The team issued the following statement from GM Mike Tannenbaum:
"Brett requested his release some time ago. He has not indicated any desire to return to football and he remains retired. We wish him the best."
They also issued the following statement from Favre:
"Bus [Cook - Favre's agent] and Mike [Tannenbaum] have been talking about this for a while. Nothing has changed. At this time I am retired and have no intention of returning to football."
So, there you have it. I could make this longer by opining some, but I have way too much Mark Sanchez info flying around in my head at this point for that. Time to stay focused on the future. The Brett Favre era is officially over.
