(CNN) — Brett Favre never used the word retirement, but a post-game news conference following Minnesota’s 20-13 loss to Detroit Sunday had all the appearances of a swan song.

“It’s time. I know it’s time and that’s OK. It is,” Favre said. “I hold no regrets. I can’t think of too many players offhand who can walk away and say that.”

If Favre is calling it quits, it will be the third time he has announced his retirement during a 20-year career. The 41-year-old future hall of famer said he was quitting in 2008 and again 2009 before continuing with the New York Jets and the Vikings.

“It’s been a wonderful ride for me,” Favre said. “It’s the grace of God I got a chance to play this game and play it at a high level.”
