Former MVP Brett Favre has nixed rumors that he could be available for an NFL team in need of a quarterback. "In spite of reports about playing with various teams, I'm enjoying retirement with my family and have no plans to play football," Favre said in a statement Wednesday on his website. "I haven't contacted nor have been contacted by any teams and all reports are inaccurate." Most speculation in recent weeks focused on the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears after both teams lost their starting quarterbacks to injuries. Favre, 42, retired after last season following an injury-plagued year with the Minnesota Vikings. He has said previously over the past year that he had no interest in returning to the NFL, despite his history of being lured out of retirement.
