Report: Brett Favre Has Told Packers He Would Like to Play This Year
Maybe Brett Favre isn't retired after all.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Favre has told Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy that he has thought about playing this year. Although Favre's comeback talk is apparently in its preliminary stages, Mortensen also reports that Favre's family is encouraging him to play.
Packers cornerback Al Harris appeared with Mortensen on ESPN's NFL Live this afternoon and said that Favre has told him that he "has the itch" to keep playing.
Favre tearfully announced his retirement this off-season, and almost immediately afterward there were rumors that he'd be back.
