Favre gets into Packers workouts

June 1, 2006 at 4:18 PM

GREEN BAY, Wis., June 1 (UPI) -- Just weeks after deciding to skip retirement and play for a 16th season, quarterback Brett Favre was at work at this week's Green Bay Packers spring minicamp.

The Hall-of-Fame-bound quarterback practiced Thursday while many other veteran teammates were no-shows.


"It's always good to have No. 4 here," said new Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. Favre worked out in the weight room Wednesday with strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullickson, the team's packersNews.com Web site said.

Favre is looking to bounce back from his worst season (4-12) as a pro in 2005 when he threw 20 touchdowns and 29 interceptions and had a career-low 70.9 passer rating.

"Being 4-12 was obviously new to me," he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel at a news conference last month. "As the season progressed, we were playing from behind, and it was different."
