Brett Favre Ends Retirement Twice

Brett Favre informed the Green Bay Packers that he was retiring in 2008, but came back that same year to play quarterback for the New York Jets. Then in February 2009, Favre informed the Jets that he was done with the game only to officially sign with the Minnesota Vikings that same year. Favre enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career in 2009, passing for over 4,000 yards and 33 touchdowns. Great career. (Photos from left: Al Pereira/Getty Images, Rob Tringali/SportsChrome/Getty Images)
