It wouldn’t be the start of the offseason without a post on Brett Favre’s potential retirement. Peter King of Sports Illustrated/NBC reported that Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum spoke to Favre recently and told him he was in no rush to make a decision. King indicated that Favre would have “months” to let the Jets know of his future plans. However, the Jets are refuting that report, according to several media outlets. Per Newsday, the team would like a decision by Feb. 18, the start of the combine. And a source tells the New York Daily News the same thing, but adds that the Jets are willing to wait longer if necessary. Meanwhile, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Sunday that Favre could be angling to join the Vikings, but such a move would not happen via trade because it would cost the Jets multiple first-round picks. Favre is due $13 million in 2009.
