Favre tells the Jets he's hanging up the cleats, really
The New York Jets confirmed this morning that quarterback Brett Favre has told them he'll retire.
Team owner Woody Johnson said he spoke with Favre this morning (Wednesday).
"I had a great conversation with Brett this morning. Considering that he came from a totally different environment and joined our team during training camp, his performance last season was extraordinary," said Johnson in a statement on the Jets' Web site.
