After avoiding public comment through weeks of speculation about his football future, Brett Favre is speaking for himself. He wants to play but doesn't feel welcome in Green Bay, so he's asking to be released.
Favre's first substantial comments on his latest retirement decision reversal come in an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren scheduled to air at 10 p.m. ET Monday.
"I am guilty of retiring early and there is a reason for that," Favre said, according to an excerpt provided to The Associated Press. "And the major issue is 'Why did he retire,' and 'He asked for a release because he doesn't want to play in Green Bay.' That's not true, and I hope people are hearing this and saying, 'OK, that clears it up."'
