On the heels of a report that suggested the St. Louis Rams had contacted 44-year-old quarterback Brett Favre about a return to the NFL, Favre, who has apparently received multiple calls (!!!) has decided to set the record straight – there is no way he’s returning.
Favre appeared on Sports Talk 570 this morning to address the situation and informed the show that his agent, Bus Cook, told him ‘a couple teams called’ this season to see if Favre would put down the tractor and return to the gridiron, but it’s something he’s just not interested in:
“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.”
“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.”
I’m sure it was a pretty difficult decision for Favre to stay off the field, despite his suggestions that he knew better.
