Within hours of one another, the two biggest announcements of the NFL offseason have been made.
Brett Favre is retiring. After something like 16 seasons in the league, he is hanging them up.
Coincidentally, the Patriots have announced that they have signed Randy Moss to a 3 year contract, with $15 million in guaranteed money.
My theory is that Favre told the Packers that if they got Moss, he'd come back for one more season. If not, he was done. As soon as the Pats announced Moss was staying in Foxboro, that was it for Favre. Again, my source for this is my own ass, but most of the time my ass proves to be right.
