Favre says he is considering playing again

NEW YORK (AP) - Brett Favre says he is considering coming out of retirement for a second time and the only team he has talked to about a return to the NFL is the Minnesota Vikings.

Favre appeared on the new HBO show "Joe Buck Live" in his first public appearance since retiring from the New York Jets in February.

The 3-time NFL MVP said Monday night he had surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago on his throwing arm. He says the doctor who performed the surgery on his biceps told him it would take four to five weeks for the NFL's career leader in touchdown passes to know if the procedure was a success.

Favre says he has had contact with the Vikings, but "nothing more than are you interested."
