Brett Favre has reportedly decided to retire from football for the third time. 40-year-old Favre has allegedly decided to call it quits this time due to a slow recovery from surgery on his left ankle earlier this year.

Favre did not report to training camp for the Minnesota Vikings when it opened on Friday. Still, not everyone is ready to accept Favre’s reported retirement considering he’s already tried it twice before.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, who will be going up against the Vikings in November, told the Washington Post “I’ll have to see it before I believe it.”
