Surprise! Brett Favre has un-retired.
The veteran QB has announced that he will return to the Minnesota Vikings for one more season.
Favre, who had initially announced his retirement on August 3, says the strong possibility of making it to another Super Bowl brought him back to the NFL yet again.
“As we were driving on that last drive it seemed like it was destiny, for us,” said Favre. “I was so close, so close to getting these guys to the Super Bowl.
“I owe it to this organization to give it one more try.”
“I could make a case for both playing, not playing,” Favre said. “This is a very good football team, the chances here are much greater than other places. From that standpoint, it was always going to be easier [to return].
“Part of me said it was such a great year, it would be easy to say, ‘Hey can’t play any better, why even try?’ Then the other part is, ‘Guys are playing on a high level. Why don’t I go back out?’ The expectations are high here, as they should be.”
Favre, who has un-retired twice before in his career, says this will be his last season in the NFL. Watch the video below for more.
