Raw Video: Brett Favre Addresses Playing Status

Hattiesburg Mississippi Scott Leahy USA Today reports former National Football League (NFL) quaterback Brett Favre told a Mississippi televsion station he is "staring a new career" and happy to have his NFL career in the past.

Brett told Mississippi television station WDAM Brett "could be coaching, could be tv. Both of those are probably unlikely at least anytime soon."

Favre 41, filed his retirement papers with the NFL in January 2011. He holds the record for a starting quarterback with 297 consecutive starts. His streak ended in December after he suffered a concussion and he was forced to retire.

On Friday Favre appeared at a youth football clinic when he made his comments. Brett says he has no concrete plans for any future work, but added he doesn't expect to coach "anytime soon at any level."

Brett in 2008 and 2009 ended brief retirements to return to playing professional football. But Brett said last year he didn't anticipate returning to playing professional football in 2011.

Brett acknowledged leaving the game is hard, espcially when the season starts.

Fvare said "I'm sure there will come a point where I will miss that. And I'll always miss the guys in the locker room, winning and losing together. There's no subsitute for that."
