Jets QB Favre retiring, agent says

NEW YORK Brett Favre s agent says the New York Jets quarterback will retire.

The 39-year-old Favre instructed agent James Bus Cook to tell the team Wednesday that he won t return for a 19th NFL season and second with the Jets.

In an e-mail to ESPN, Favre says he has no regrets about ending his career in New York and praises the team s owner, front office and fired coach Eric Mangini.

Favre wrote he enjoyed his time with the Jets, despite a late-season slump that saw New York go from 8-3 to missing the playoffs. Favre threw nine interceptions as the Jets went 1-4 down the stretch, and a torn right biceps might have contributed.
