HACKLEBURG, Ala. – Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre says he has no intention of coming out of retirement.

Favre said he was “done with football” when asked Wednesday if he might attempt another comeback. Favre, a spokesman for Wrangler jeans, met with employees at a Wrangler plant that was destroyed by recent tornadoes that devastated the region.

Favre signed autographs for members of the Hackleburg High School football team and Wrangler employees.

Favre, who last played in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings, couldn’t escape talking football. When he first stepped out of his vehicle, he was greeted by Marion County Commission President Don Barnwell, who asked him if he was going to play football this year.

As for the NFL lockout, Favre says he doesn’t know if there “would be any football” this year.

MNVikingsBlog.com Analysis: Brett Favre has an absolute amazing season in 2009 and unfortunately followed it up with a mediocre 2010.  While injuries were obviously an issue, to put the blame on Favre isn’t fair.  The Vikings had far too many issues on and off the field for the team to succeed.  Favre is now retired with no intentions of coming back.  As fun as it was to ‘hate’ Favre while he was a Packer, most fans can appreciate the time he was a Viking.  SKOL VIKES.
