Brett Favre Retires (Again) ... In Writing

1/17/2011 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This time Brett Favre means it -- he's retiring from football ... and he's gone so far as to file paperwork with the NFL saying he's done ... TMZ has confirmed.

TMZ confirmed with the Minnesota Vikings that Favre filed the documents.

Of course, this is just a technicality. The 41-year old future Hall of Fame QB could still decide to return next season -- as he did the last three years.

Then again, Favre's never been this beat up -- he didn't even play in the Vikes' last two games.

So, we gotta ask...

the fact that the Packers and Jets are both one game away from the super bowl is another sign to stick a fork in it, not that he needs another sign but just sayin'.

+1 MightyMad, gotta wonder how he could be so stupid at 40 years old to send the photos but still one of the greatest. He'll still have a great broadcasting career if that is what he chooses to do. Memory of the American people is about 2 minutes.

Retired from the Packers in 2008 = hero.
Retired from the Vikings in 2011 = digraced.

Greed will do it to you every time.

He is retiring to become a 'small penis' double in porn. Steven Hirsch has offered him a job after seeing the photos he sent to girls.

Wow Favre, you attention whore. Coincidence that the Bears win yesterday and Green Bay cheeseheads won Saturday and you announce your retirement just in time. Are you hoping that you will get praised at the game next Sunday. You think everyone will stand and clap? Joke. You should have retired ten years ago before you took pictures with your pants down when you could have potentially walked with some dignity.Nice try old man.
Retire already. Take your trash bag sister with you. Retire back to your barn.
Go bears!!!!!

Favre accomplished nothing by coming out of retirement. He just proved how old he is in NFL terms. Only kickers can play at his age, and then only a few of them.
