GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre says he isn't out for revenge against the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, contradicting his previously stated desire to stick it to the man who traded him, general manager Ted Thompson.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback opened a conference call Thursday by asserting that revenge had nothing to do with his comeback, and he only wants to win a championship.

But when reminded of his comments to si.com in February -- in which Favre said part of his motivation last season was "sticking it" to Thompson -- Favre acknowledged he did want to show the Packers he still could play. He insisted that's not the same as playing only for revenge.
