MILWAUKEE (AP) -Brett Favre plans to skip the Green Bay Packers' mandatory minicamp this weekend, saying the move is not related to his frustration with the team's unwillingness to complete a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss.
Favre told the Biloxi (Miss.) Sun-Herald that because he is unable to practice while recovering from offseason ankle surgery, he is going to stay home with his family in Mississippi.
``They were going to have me sit out anyway,'' Favre said, in a story that appeared on the paper's Web site on Tuesday. ``To be honest, we have (daughter) Brittany graduating in two weeks. Instead of going up there and not doing anything, I will be better off being at home because of graduation parties and banquets.''
Favre said he isn't skipping the minicamp as a protest with the team's front office.
``I am frustrated,'' Favre told the paper. ``But being frustrated and not going are not related.''
