Although Brett Favre retired from the New York Jets this season he was still under the teams contract if he decided to return.

As of last night the, 39 year old was released by the team allowing him to become eligible to play for any NFL team if he decided to return.

Favre has requested his release from the Jets some time ago and following the 2009 NFL Draft it was finally granted.

The ten time pro-bowler, 3 time MVP winner, and Super Bowl winner may finally be ready to call it quits.

While I think Favre is sincere this time about retiring, it would not shock me the least bit if he wound up playing in a Vikings uniform or on a team where there starting QB went down for the season.

In Brett's statement following his release he notes, “Nothing has changed. At this time, I am retired and have no intention of returning to football.”

Key words: At this time

Last time Favre retired he did not realize he wanted to still play football until around July.
