With the lockout slowing down pro football news, leave it to Brett Favre to give talking heads material to work with during the offseason. Another summer, another rumored return by Favre, except this year’s comeback-rumor isn’t being spearheaded by the quarterback himself. Instead NFL.com personnel expert & Cowboys exec Gil Brandt stirred up the hornet’s next yesterday during a live chat. When asked about the possibility of Favre returning, Brandt answered “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.”
Even though the retired QB hasn’t addressed the rumor, his pal and Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell told FoxSportsNorth.com “I talk to him (Favre) at least once a week. We are good friends. He is doing great; his family is doing great. He is really excited about not having any questions about whether he is coming back or not, there is no doubt.”
So no team wants Brett? Does anybody – teams and fans included – feel like they need him to leave retirement…again?
