GREEN BAY, Wis. — Even in retirement, Brett Favre is still looking for big game.

The Green Bay Packers icon apparently spent the first days of the rest of his life hunting wild boar.

Former Favre teammate and close friend Frank Winters said Favre sent him a text message during the hunting trip he took after holding his retirement news conference Thursday — a preview of the laid-back life former teammates expect Favre to settle into now that he has hung up his helmet.

While the idea of Favre going to work for a television network is popular, Winters and others think he's simply going to disappear for a while.

"I really don't think he'll really get into that stuff right now," said Winters, who was in Green Bay on Saturday for the Packers' annual fan fest at Lambeau Field. "Maybe a few years from now. Who knows?"

Favre cited fatigue as the reason for his retirement, and said he didn't have any plans for the future — other than to rest and get out of the spotlight.

SPYGATE AGREEMENT NEAR: Matt Walsh, the former New England Patriots employee said to have tapes of illegal spying by the team, is close to an agreement to turn over information to the NFL. The NFL said in a statement Sunday night that in the last week, lawyers for Walsh and the league have made "substantial progress toward an agreement that will allow Mr. Walsh to be interviewed. Both sides are optimistic that any remaining issues can be addressed successfully and they are committed to reaching a full agreement as promptly as possible," the statement added. Walsh, a golf pro in Hawaii, has been seeking protection from lawsuits and other legal action, whether by the Patriots or other parties. The two sides have been negotiating for almost a month.
