Brett Favre announced that he will retire from the NFL after 20 seasons in order to spend more quality time with his team of lawyers, who Favre says he “rarely ever saw” during his playing career.

“I was so focused on my football career for so many years that getting into trouble so I could be with my lawyers kind of took a back seat,” Favre said while holding back tears during his retirement announcement. “But with all that harassing I did, including the stuff they don’t even know about yet, we’ll have plenty of time to catch up now.”

Despite having the worst statistical season of his career, playing on the most disappointing team of his career, suffering through the worst injuries of his career, dealing with a mid-season coaching change and getting knocked into Bolivian by a rookie in his final game, effectively ending his season and career, Favre insist he regrets nothing about the way he is leaving the game.

“I’m leaving on my own terms,” Favre added.
