NFL Network’s Steve Mariucci, who has mentored Favre, reported Tuesday that the quarterback was undecided. “Right now, he told me, ‘I’m trying to get my body healthy,'” said Mariucci.
On Wednesday, Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, made a statement to Mariucci. “As far as Brett is concerned, in spite of reports to the contrary, Brett’s situation has nothing to do with his contract, but everything to do with his health and ability to contribute to that team and play at a level that he has been accustomed to playing over the years. … Brett’s ankle, which needed surgery since 2007, was surgically repaired this last spring by Dr. James Andrews. Until such time, Brett feels he can play at a level that he expects of himself, no decision will be made.
