Brett Favre Retires

Quarterback Brett Favre has retired before, three or four times to be exact.  This time, however, it appears Favre is gone for good.  NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed that the 41-year old Favre filed his retirement papers with the NFL this morning.  The curve ball in all of this is, however, Favre could apply reinstatement any time and has previously filed retirement papers with the NFL - in 2008.
