Brett Favre has now officially come out of retirement three times in his professional football career. Today marked the third time Favre has changed his mind about leaving the game behind.
Since his first attempt at retirement in 2008, Favre has gotten into a pattern of retiring once a year. First he retired from the Green Bay Packers, then from the New York Jets and finally this year from the Minnesota Vikings.
The only difference between this retirement and the others is the fact that Favre will not be signing to a new team. This time Favre will be coming out of his short retirement to play for the team he just recently retired from.
The next several slides give a time line of Favre’s many retirements and reinstatements, and a prediction of whether or not he will be retiring at the end of this season too.
