Got this from rotoworld.com. Read carefully...they are a little skepitcal still...

Free agent Brett Favre has turned down the Vikings' attempts to sign him and will stay retired, according to Yahoo's Rick Schwartz.

While we try to figure out who Rick Schwartz is, we'd caution to take this with a grain of salt. Citing one source, Schwartz says Favre told Brad Childress "sometime in the last day" that he will stay retired and explain himself publicly "soon." Favre and Childress apparently did not meet Wednesday and Childress was not known to be en route to Favre's home Thursday.

I'm still skeptical reading this, knowing how much of a drama queen Brett is. If he wants to play, then play, the problem I had was it seemed like his motivation was to get back at Ted Thompson and it seemed like he has a real problem letting go. I can understand that, most athletes have a hard time leaving, it just seemed extreme with Brett.

I am like you guys, I am not going to believe it till I see him retired for three plus season, that's the only way I am going to believe that he's not coming back for another year.

This guy is only relying on one source as well, that's not saying much.

It's probably just a ploy by Brett. He noticed Manny Ramirez got into trouble today and knows that he'll be over shadowed.

So he'll sign once the Manny crap ends.
