Former Green Bay Packer quarterback Brett Favre said coming back to the NFL is the last thing he’d ever want to do, quashing a whisper campaign that he was considering a pro football comeback.
The speculation was kicked into high gear with a tweet by the sports gambling site Fan Duel, that featured a supposed Favre announcement saying that he was “coming out of retirement,” Sporting News reported.

But Favre himself squashed the post telling TMZ that his social media was hacked.
“I got hacked…the last thing I want to do is come back and play…it was fun then but I’m not coming back,” Favre said.

Looks like “The Gunslinger” is limiting himself to just the one Super Bowl.
