Favre Might Not Be Done With Football

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) Former Packers, Jets and Vikings quarterback Brett Favre says he could return to football as a coach or a television analyst, although he has no plans to enter either field anytime soon.

The 41-year-old Favre ended a 20-year playing career after an injury-plagued 2010 season with the Minnesota Vikings. The former Southern Mississippi star has famously wavered on retirement over the last few offseasons. But the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player has told WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg on Thursday that he was “starting a new career.”

Favre gave the interview at a football camp at Oak Grove High School. He says he’s spent the last several months traveling and following Southern Miss baseball.

The end of Favre’s career was marred with a “sexting” scandal with former Jets reporter Jenn Sterger. Sterger accused Favre of sending unsolicited and inappropriate text messages and pictures. He was fined $50,000 by the NFL for not cooperating in investigations.

He submitted his retirement paperwork to the NFL in January.

    Coaching? he needs to play…he still has the skills, determination, and know how to still play..In my opinion he is still in the top 5 QB’s in the game…If he doesn’t come back the game wont be the same…come back Favre, you still got it…
