GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -Brett Favre wants the Green Bay Packers to release him so he can return to the NFL with another team, according to an ESPN report.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Friday that sources close to Favre and the team told him agent James ``Bus'' Cook formally asked the Packers for Favre's release in a letter because the Packers were not receptive about Favre wanting to play again.
The 38-year-old Favre retired March 6 after a 17-year career.
Messages left by The Associated Press for Packers general manager Ted Thompson, a team spokesman and Cook were not immediately returned.
The Packers plan to use Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback for the upcoming season.
