I really, really, really hope he doesn't come back. People are sick and tired of this soap opera fro a washed up QB

The brief Brett Favre era in New York is over.

Favre has informed the Jets he is retiring after 18 seasons in the NFL, FOXSports.com has confirmed, ending a record-setting career in which he was one of the NFL's premier quarterbacks.

Farewell, Favre

The move was first reported by ESPN. The Jets also confirmed the news on their Web site late Wednesday morning.
"I had a great conversation with Brett this morning," Jets chairman Woody Johnson said. "Considering that he came from a totally different environment and joined our team during training camp, his performance last season was extraordinary." The 39-year-old instructed agent James "Bus" Cook to tell the team of his decision, six weeks after Favre's only season with the Jets ended in disappointment as New York failed to make the playoffs.
