Brett Favre recently had arthroscopic surgery on his ailing right shoulder, ESPN reported Sunday night, another indication the three-time NFL MVP is considering coming out of retirement. ESPN, citing two anonymous sources, reported that Favre had surgery last month to repair the torn biceps tendon that bothered him late last season with the New York Jets. Favre retired in February, but the Jets released him at his request in April — making him a free agent. According to the report, Favre has thrown on a limited basis since the surgery, but isn’t close to 100 per cent. Minnesota said it would be interested in Favre if he comes out of retirement.
