ESPN's Rachel Nichols is reporting from Hattiesburg, Miss. that after talking with agent Bus Cook, retired quarterback Brett Favre is still waffling on the decision of returning to the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings or staying retired.

Reports of Favre's indecision started at the end of last week from Ed Werder, saying the three-time MVP quarterback was "anguished" with his decision after speaking with Cook.

Favre appeared on "Joe Buck Live" in June and made it clear that his arm injury was the largest barrier between him returning to the NFL.

It now appears from various reports and statements from Favre himself that surgery in which a tendon in his right arm was cut has been a success. Now it seems that he may be questioning whether or not he wants to endure training camp and another NFL season.

The Vikings will report to training camp on Thursday and hold their first practice Friday morning. Favre stated weeks ago that he would make a decision on a return by Thursday.

Unless he changes his mind that is.
