Former (at least for now) Packers quarterback Brett Favre breaks his silence about his comeback plans in an unusual place.

Rather than talking to ESPN's Chris Mortenson or Sports Illustrated's Peter King or other noted football reporters, Favre gave the scoop to Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, the host of "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

Van Susteren, a native of Appleton and a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, is a Packers fan and has interviewed Favre in the past. According to Fox News, she conducted the interview today and it airs tonight.

Van Susteren's show airs at 9 p.m.
