Deja vu Again for Brett?
The annual rite of spring is here. I can’t shake a stick without being asked my thoughts on the plans of one Brett Favre. Of course, this happened even when Brett had not retired and went through his decision-making months after the end of the season from 2005-2007. And, of course, it happened last year prior to – and following – his retirement. I expected Brett to want to continue playing a year ago, as I did every year for the past several years. Now, not so sure.
I have not talked to Brett, but I’ve talked with Bus Cook, his agent with whom I negotiated Brett's 10-year, $101M contract in 2001, both of us hoping at that time that Brett would play three more years.
