Brett Favre has informed his Vikings teammates that he will not return for another season in Minnesota, the Star-Tribune reported Tuesday.
Sources also confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Favre planned to retire.
Neither Favre nor the vikings have confirmed the news but a press release is expected Tuesday, the sources said.
The Star-Tribune first reported Favre's intentions to retire.
This would be the third retirement for Favre, who also retired after 16 seasons with the Green Bay Packers after the 2007 season and one season with the New York Jets after the 2008 season.
Favre has been working out at his home in Hattiesburg, Miss., still rehabbing a surgically repaired ankle that was injured in Minnesota's overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC title game. He has yet to inform the team if he will honor the second year of his contract and come back for another run at the Super Bowl.
