Favre Files Retirement Papers

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has officially filed his retirement papers with the NFL, Alex Marvez of reports.

Favre has "retired" twice before, but the 41-year old future Hall of Famer is expected to remain so this time after injuries, on-field struggles, and off-field headlines plagued his 20th season in the NFL.

Recruited back for another season by Vikings teammates Jared Allen, Steve Hutchinson, and Ryan Longwell, Favre dealt with ankle, shoulder, and concussions in 2010, with his NFL-record 297 consecutive regular season starting streak coming to an end in December.

In 13 games this season, Favre completed 60.6% of his 358 pass attempts for 11 touchdowns, but was intercepted 19 times, finishing the season with a career-low 69.9 passer rating.

The NFL also fined Favre $50,000 for being forthright with the NFL in their investigation into allegations that he sent inappropriate text messages to former New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger during the 2008 season.
