ESPN: QB Brett Favre has told the New York Jets he is retiring.
Favre had instructed his agent, James "Bus" Cook, to inform the
Jets on Wednesday that he is retiring. Favre and the Jets both
confirmed the retirement in separate conference calls. "There are
several things that went into decision but most importantly, the
most important thing, was that physically, you know with my
shoulder the last half of the year it hampered the way I played,"
Favre said. "I'm 39, I had several options [to have surgery] and
to let it heal. How that would affect me in terms of playing I had
no idea and it wasn't something I was going to risk." Jets owner
Woody Johnson said it was Favre's decision to step aside.
