Agent: Favre status unchanged

MINNEAPOLIS -- Brett Favre remains retired, as far as his agent is concerned.

Favre's longtime representative Bus Cook said Friday afternoon in an interview with The Associated Press that he is unaware of any pending change in Favre's plans. Cook says he speaks with his friend every day, but not about football.

The Vikings have expressed interest in the record-setting 39-year-old quarterback, whose waffling has become an annual summer story around the NFL. Minnesota coach Brad Childress said at a community service event Friday he isn't thinking about Favre, when asked if he had a deadline in mind for Favre to make a decision about his status.

Cook declined to comment on the condition of Favre's injured right arm, citing client confidentiality.
