    Favre unsure of future, wonders if Packers want him

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Associated Press

    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Facing Sunday's season finale at Lambeau Field, Brett Favre says he still hasn't decided whether he'll return to the Green Bay Packers next season.

    And it's occurred to him that the team might not want him back.


    "It is a business," Favre said Wednesday. "And up to this point, we're 3-12. And from a business standpoint, wouldn't you think they're sitting there going, 'OK, if we're running a risk of this happening next year, we might as well save the money and put that money elsewhere for the future'?"


    Packers general manager Ted Thompson said the team definitely wants Favre back.


    "Sure we do," Thompson said. "And we're assuming he will be back."


    Favre has thrown a career-high 28 interceptions this season. He acknowledges he has made risky throws he wouldn't have tried in past seasons, attempting to make up for a rash of injuries that has cost the team many of its offensive playmakers this year.


    But does Favre really think the Packers might try to chase him off?


    "I've said this over the last several years: It can happen to anyone. It really can," Favre said. "I'm not immune to it. I think that the organization and myself have a great relationship, and they can be honest with me because I've always been honest. But that could happen."


    Thompson dismissed speculation that Favre's skills have eroded.


    "I think he can still play, and I think he still has the passion to play," Thompson said.


    Favre said he and Thompson have had some discussions about the future direction of the team, although he characterized those discussions as "really nothing major."
