Amid a storm of rumors, reports, and speculations that emerged on Tuesday regarding the Third Annual Retirement of Brett Lorenzo Favre, the quarterback has returned to the high school practice field in Mississippi, presumably to get ready for the coming football season.
The report comes from Scott Hanson of NFL Network, who has arrived in Hattiesburg for Favre Watch 2010.
The development reinforces our belief that the text messages sent to teammates regarding a looming retirement were part of an effort to get more money and/or a relaxed deadline for showing up. And it now appears that his teammates were pawns in a purple power play.
Of course, Favre’s teammates won’t complain. With Favre, they could win a Super Bowl ring. Without him, they possibly win the right to lose in the first round of the playoffs.
