LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brett Favre is still deciding whether he'll return for a 20th NFL season. He's getting some recognition for his performance last year, with four nominations Thursday for the ESPY Awards.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback is nominated for record-breaking performance, having set an NFL record for consecutive starts; best play, for his game-winning touchdown pass against the San Francisco 49ers; performance under pressure; and best NFL player, where Favre is vying against quarterbacks Drew Brees and Peyton Manning among others.

Tiger Woods, who owns a record 22 ESPY Awards, is nominated for male golfer of the year, an award he's won five consecutive years.

Brees is nominated for three individual awards, including male athlete of the year.
