Brett Favre will not play in 2010
By Joe McGehee
Monday, Aug. 2, Brett Favre informed the Minnesota Vikings he will not be behind center for the 2010 National Football League (NFL) season in the Metrodome. Favre, who would be entering his 20th NFL season, told USA Today last month he was unsure if his body could take the punishment of another 16-game season.
In another offseason filled with uncertainty pertaining to his playing status, the 40-year-old Favre has consistently shown doubt about his return to the Vikings. Surgery on his left ankle in May has helped to further cloud the future of perhaps the game’s greatest statistical quarterback.
The Minnesota Vikings have yet to comment on Favre’s decision, but are reportedly hoping the aging star will change his mind, according to FOX Sports. A change in heart would not be unusual for the Mississippi native, as the past two NFL offseasons have been engulfed by the continually changing desires of Favre, or “As the Favre Turns.”
According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Favre is expected to deliver a public statement later today (Tuesday, Aug. 3).
