Brett Favre is leaning toward returning for another season with the Packers, according to comments he made to his hometown newspaper in Mississippi.
In a story posted on the Web site of the Biloxi Sun-Herald, the record-setting quarterback says he isn't approaching Saturday's playoff game against Seattle like it will be his final game in Green Bay.
While it has been widely assumed that Favre would come back to play next season after having one of the best years of his career, both he and Packers coach Mike McCarthy have said the future Hall of Famer would wait until after the season to address the issue.
Favre's now-annual flirtation with retirement has taken on a life of its own in Wisconsin. He has taken weeks and even months in recent years to make up his mind.
