BRISTOL, Conn., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Veteran quarterback Brett Favre of Green Bay says he might retire from the NFL.

He told ESPN's Chris Mortenson in an interview Sunday night that he would like to wait a month before deciding whether to play a 16th season in 2006, but admitted that's a luxury he might not have. He said he told Green Bay General Manager Ted Thompson recently that the Packers should cut him loose if they can't wait for a decision.

"I love the game too much and I love my legacy too much to have that just be OK, and I don't want to be just OK. I want to be good, and I don't know if I'm committed enough (right now) to be good on an everyday basis. It's a matter of how much I'm willing to give."

In his 15 seasons, Favre has passed for 53,615 yards, 396 touchdowns and 255 interceptions, won two Super Bowls and is a three-time MVP.
