MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre said Thursday he still hasn’t decided whether he’ll play again next season – and doesn’t expect to make an announcement anytime soon.
Appearing on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” on Thursday night, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback politely demurred when host Jay Leno asked for his thoughts on returning for 2010.
“Well Jay, it’s only been a month, and I know now that I’m just not going to say anything anytime soon, just going to kind of sit back, relax, enjoy the offseason,” Favre said in his first public comments since Minnesota’s bitter overtime loss in the NFC championship at New Orleans on Jan. 24.
Favre is the NFL’s career leader in nearly every major passing category and a three-time league MVP. The former Green Bay Packer had one of his best seasons ever after doing what was once unfathomable: deciding to play for his former bitter rival in Minnesota. The Vikings were rewarded with 33 touchdowns and the lowest interception rate of Favre’s career.
