Not only has Brett Favre foreclosed on the idea that he might come back to the NFL, the retired star quarterback said he's now suffering memory loss.

"I don't remember my daughter playing soccer, playing youth soccer, one summer," Favre said in an interview with WSPZ radio. "I don't remember that. I got a pretty good memory, and I have a tendency, like we all do, to say, 'Where are my glasses?' and they're on your head.

"This was pretty shocking to me that I couldn't remember my daughter playing youth soccer, just one summer, I think. I remember her playing basketball, I remember her playing volleyball, so I kind of think maybe she only played a game or two. I think she played eight.

"So that's a little bit scary to me. For the first time in 44 years, that put a little fear in me. ... I think after 20 years, God only knows the toll."

Favre, 44, was sacked 525 times over the course of his career, more than any other quarterback.
