Brett Favre

A retired football star says he's staying retired partly over fear for his health.

FOX News Radio's Chris Foster reports:

Audio clip:

Sources say the Saint Louis Rams reached out to Brett Favre to come out of retirement as their quarterback, to replace their injured starter Sam Bradford. Favre's 44 years old, retired three seasons ago. He tells a Washington D.C. sports station, it's flattering to be asked, but worries he wouldn't be able to compete physically. And, he says he's worried about the effect of concussions, over his 20 year career. He says, for example, he has no memory of his daughter playing youth soccer one summer.
