GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packer Nation, rest easy.

Quarterback Brett Favre said today he wants to finish his career as a Green Bay Packer.

In a statement on the Packers' Web site, Favre acknowledges his anger over the team's unwillingness to pull off a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss.

But, Favre denies he ever really wanted the Green Bay Packers to trade him.

Favre says it was his frustration and emotions that got the best of him.

The MVP quarterback spent Saturday venting about the Packers' front office in a handful of media interviews at his annual charity golf tournament.

Then Fox Sports' Web site reported Sunday that Favre's agent called Packers general manager Ted Thompson shortly after last month's NFL draft to request a trade.

That request was denied, according to the report, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy eventually calmed Favre down.

In his statement, Favre says he's working hard rehabbing in Mississippi.
