"As reports that Brett Favre will retire for a third time dominated the NFL, Steve Marucci stepped forward with a message: Everybody just needs to calm down.
Marucci, who coached Favre in Green Bay, said Tuesday that his former pupil isn't ready to call it quits and is trying to wait out a troublesome ankle that needed offseason surgery.
"So the question mark is, how fast can he be healthy?" Marucci said on NFL Network's NFL Total Access. "He's trying. He's trying like crazy. He was working out in his yard today, he told me."
