Brett Favre tells Chris Mortensen that he's strongly considering retirement. It sounds like he feels that the Packers are rushing him to make a decision soon. Favre would still be a better quarterback than Aaron Rodgers in 2006, but getting Favre's $10 million salary off the books would help the Packers. My guess is the team's top brass wants Favre to retire but doesn't want the bad PR of forcing him out.

Extending the football season for the worst teams as well as the best, for no reason other than money? Your Scramble team marvels that the NFL hasn't yet stolen bowl season away from the NCAA.
