Brett Favre continues to wrestle with a decision on whether to come out of retirement, agent Bus Cook told ESPN's Rachel Nichols on Monday.

Favre told The Associated Press earlier this month that he'll give the Minnesota Vikings an answer on whether he'll play by the July 30 start of training camp.

At issue for Favre is whether he's really up to the mental and physical requirements of a long season in which he'll turn 40 years old. The quarterback's friends and family say they are leaving this decision solely up to him and will be supportive no matter which way he goes.

In the meantime Favre is poking some fun at his own indecisiveness in a new advertisement for Sears that will run in September. Cook told ESPN that Favre shot the ad last Monday.

Rachel Nichols is a reporter for ESPN.
