Word on the street (via Yahoo! Sports) is that former quarterback Brett Favre will remain in retirement.

Favre has reportedly spoke with Vikings management and made this known.

There was speculation to the effect of a missed meeting between Brad Childress and Favre, and this would seem to complete the story.

If there is any truth to this report, it would end a virtual whirlwind of speculation concerning Favre joining the Vikings in weeks past.
