Ok, this is getting curiouser and curiouser.

Earlier in the day, reports surfaced that Brett Favre had told the Vikings that he did not plan on returning for the 2010 season, setting off a torrent of publicity about this latest on-again, off-again retirement thing that Favre has turned into an art form.

Now comes word from the Sun Herald in Mississippi that Favre has not made a final decision, according to a family member.

"Brett has not made a commitment to play or a decision to return at this point," the family source said.

Favre's brother, Scott, said he had not heard from Brett about his future plans.

"I have heard no truth to that [retirement]," Scott Favre told the paper. "I know he can still play and I want him to keep playing."
