"There are always second thoughts, but that's not saying I'm coming back,” said Favre. "It's never a clear-cut decision. It's something I can't expect everyone to understand. No, there's no perfect time. "First of all, I won't keep myself in shape. I'm sure after training camp is over and all that hard work is done, it might be `OK, now.' It might be nice to dream about it ... but no.” The former Green Bay Packers quarterback made his statements in New York, where it was announced he will be the cover boy for Madden NFL 09. Favre is the first retired player to have his visage on the cover, though he admitted he doesn't play videogames and has never played the Madden game. After the press conference, a Packers official went to the NFL offices and filed Favre's retirement papers. Later in the day, the Packers placed him on the reserve-retired list, officially removing him from the roster.
