Brett Favre retired from football today.
He informed the New York Jets of his decision and thanked them for having him as their quarterback this past season.
Although Favre has retired before as most of us know, I believe that this is it.
He is hurt and tired.
The 2008 season took a toll on him and there is nothing more to prove.
So Brett Favre walks away from playing football with a slew of records.
The most notable being 464 career touchdown passes, 5,720 completions, 65,127 yards passing, 169 regular-season victories and 310 interceptions.
Favre is an icon in Green Bay where he played most of his career and he will always be one of the NFL's biggest stars.
We will miss that legendary number 4 on the field.
I don't know if he will ever coach or be a part of the game again, but one thing is certain: Brett Favre will be in the Hall of Fame in five years.
Thank you Brett.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
