|Goodell Wants to "Wait and Hear" on Favre
|WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he's taking a "wait and hear" approach to the latest twist in the Brett Favre saga.
Asked Wednesday during a visit to Baltimore Ravens training camp about the 40-year-old Minnesota Vikings quarterback's possible re-retirement, Goodell said, "We all love to see him play, but we want him to do what's best for him at the end of the day."
Goodell says the league hasn't heard from Favre, and "we're all reacting to media reports."
Favre reportedly has told some teammates and Vikings officials his surgically repaired left ankle is not healing the way he would like it to and that he won't return to Minnesota this season.
Goodell says, "I think I'd wait and hear what Brett has to say."
