Favre to retire?

Jay Glaser of is reporting just that: has learned that legendary quarterback Brett Favre has decided to retire. In fact, it's believed he informed the Packers of his decision within the last few days, although it's unclear when Favre and the team will make his decision known.

So barring an unforeseen last-minute change of heart, Favre will leave the game after 17 years, during which he built himself into a household name and a figure synonymous with grit, toughness and perseverance.
Hat tip to WTMJ radio, where they're scrambling over the story, too - which makes me wonder if it won't prove to be another false alarm.
