Former Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre says a couple teams have called this season to see if he’s interested in playing again.
Fortunately for all of us, Favre also says he has no interest.
“I don’t know who, but I think a couple teams have inquired,” Favre said. “It’s flattering, but there’s no way I’m gonna do that.”
One of the teams is the St. Louis Rams, according to the Journal Sentinel. The Rams just lost Sam Bradford for the season to a torn ACL and apparently still have designs on trying to compete in a stacked NFC West.
We’re betting the other team is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have been terrible behind Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne and can’t come close to filling their stadium. Favre would certainly take care of the latter problem. The Arizona Cardinals, where Carson Palmer has been awful, could be another option.
But who cares? Favre says his last season in Minnesota convinced him it was time to hang it up for good.
“I had a great career,” Favre said. “I think if anything, the last year I played was an obvious writing on the wall vision if you will, that it was time.”
That season, he threw for just 2,509 yards, 11 TDs and 19 picks.
That didn’t stop Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, from suggesting Favre could come back right now, though. Earlier this season, he said Favre is in the best shape he’s seem him and could play right now.
Cook has always been a shit stirrer like that.

What the fuck happened to Matt Flynn?
I believe he signed with Buffalo
” world rejoices when he says no “
“Pill me up, Doc. I got some fun to sling.” – Brett Favre in like a week.
Other team could have been the Bears…. could you imagine that.
Shame. I was hoping to watch him play again. Im over what happened and would love to see the old gunslinger in action. My guess is his wife said “do it and we are fucking done”.
I live in St. Louis. I heard on St. Louis sports radio that the Rams are now saying that when they were simply talking with Bus Cook about Austin Davis, they JOKED about signing Favre. Cook’s eyes apparently rolled back into his head exposing the rear facing dollar signs and immediately started discussions with Favre. The Rams responded with “That was just bullshit Joel”.
I’d believe everything I hear from Favre and Cook.
Hmmm..i bet one of em wears purple..and sent a goat fucker on a plane to go “talk” to him.
As a green bay fan and WI resident I find it ludicrous to even suggest anything Cook is involved in is true or accurate .. We in WI. have absolutely NO, I repeat No interest in seeing Brett Favre return to Green Bay and put on a ” Hallowed ” Green Bay Packer’s Uniform, Thank You Very Much !! Go Aaron Rodgers # 12 and the rest of the WORLD CHAMPION GREEN BAY PACKERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
