Brandt Opens Door On Favre Return

Brett Favre

One more time, old man?

Not that anyone needs to help out in this department because it always has a life of its own, but NFL.com’s Gil Brandt has opened the door on the possible return of one [intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink]… again.

Brandt says Favre might be getting the itch again, but this year things are a little different.

“I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning,” Brandt said. “But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.”

The [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] have seemingly moved on, drafting Florida State’s Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft.

“Brett is still a good quarterback, but I’d consider him a descending quarterback,” Brandt said. “It’s awfully hard for him to go to a team and be a backup. The Vikings must start Christian Ponder this season to get him some experience. And they’re not going to get Favre in there to babysit Ponder.”

As we all know, Favre doesn’t babysit. It’s part of the reason he and [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] don’t have much of a relationship.

There was also a completely unsubstantiated rumor the [intlink id=”249″ type=”category”]Carolina Panthers[/intlink] were interested in Favre, but they drafted Auburn’s Cam Newton No. 1 overall.

Even if Favre does get the itch to return, it seems unlikely anyone will want him, except perhaps as an in-season injury replacement.

That scenario would allow Favre to skip training camp, which he hates, and rest his body even longer than normal. It’s a possibility that can’t be ruled out.

    Maybe his next team can make it to a Championship game, and have the score tied or close and put the ball and game in his hands with 2 minutes left in the game…lmao…bwahahahahahahaha

    Brett’s done. He’s stated repeatedly last season that it was his last. I know…he’s said that before. But never at the beginning of the season and all year long.

    His body took a beating last year and he has said he doesn’t want to put his body through that anymore.
