Packers' wide receiver Donald Driver said Tuesday that doesn't believe quarterback Brett Favre will return next season. "I don't think so," Driver told Sirius NFL Radio when asked if Favre will return for a 15th season. "Everyone has been asking me that question. He's a real close friend of mine and we've been talking back and forth, and I think he's pretty much going to hang 'em up." Packers' head coach Mike Sherman asked Favre last month to make a retirement decision before the free agency period begins in March.
We can't even imagine the Packers without No. 4 taking the snaps. The fantasy impact would be astounding, as the team does not have another signal caller waiting in the wings. It's worth noting that this story broke on the same day rumors surfaced that Emmitt Smith will retire and join a investment group that is trying to purchase the Vikings. Is it possible that Favre might also be an investor? Okay, there is absolutely no evidence to support that theory. If nothing else, we hope that our imaginary scenario helps Packer fans realize that things could be worse.
Favre as an owner of the Vikings?
Now that is funny.
