Favre admits to memory loss; it was 'scary to him'
October 25, 2013, 11:30 am

The St. Louis Rams reportedly reached out to 44-year-old Brett Favre to play quarterback for them now that Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL. While that story in itself is shocking, the real story is that Favre -- who last played in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings in 2010 -- is now admitting to memory loss.

"I don't remember my daughter playing soccer, playing youth soccer, one summer," he said in an interview with Sports Talk 570 in Washington D.C. "I don't remember that. I got a pretty good memory, and I have a tendency like we all do to say, 'Where are my glasses?' and they're on your head. This was pretty shocking to me that I couldn't remember my daughter playing youth soccer, just one summer, I think. I remember her playing basketball, I remember her playing volleyball, so I kind of think maybe she only played a game or two. I think she played eight. So that's a little bit scary to me. For the first time in 44 years, that put a little fear in me."

Favre admitting to memory loss after his 16-year career is yet another talking point regarding the NFL and concussions.
