Agent Bus Cook has now twice told the media that quarterback Brett Favre is retired.
“Brett Favre’s retired, that’s all I can say,” Cook told ESPN in the wake of Dolphins coach Tony Sparano’s refusal to rule out “anything” when asked about possibly signing Favre. “He’s like Elvis now. People just won’t let go.”
And so the prophecy is coming closer to fulfillment.
After all, doesn’t Cook say Favre is retired every time a rumor of his return surfaces? And hasn’t Favre unretired on multiple occasions after Favre has said he’s retired?
Sooner or later, Favre will retire and mean it. That could be happening now. But it’s not unreasonable to conclude that another unretirement is coming, given that three in a row have happened.
