Let the Favre comeback talk begin...

Took longer than I expected... ;-)

LOS ANGELES (TICKER) —Brett Favre could be having second thoughts about retirement.

According to a Los Angeles Times report, the former Green Bay Packers quarterback, who announced his retirement last month, is contemplating a comeback with another team.

Citing NFL sources, the Times reported Thursday that Favre has been quietly talking with teams about their interest in trading for the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player.

On March 4, Favre, who played with the Packers for 16 seasons, announced his retirement during an emotional press conference at Lambeau Field.

However, Favre, 38, has yet to give written notice of his retirement to the league or players’ union.

Favre’s agent, James “Bus” Cook, told the Times he was not aware of his client’s possible interest in resuming his career.

“That’s news to me,” Cook said. “I don’t think it has anything to do with anything. He’s retired, period, point blank.”

During his press conference, Favre denied he retired because the Packers did not make a more aggressive attempt to sign wide receiver Randy Moss.

However, Favre’s decision came one day after the New England Patriots re-signed Moss to a three-year contract worth $27 million.

It was pointed out on NFL Total Access last night....Why would Favre come back on another team? Any team willing to take on an old QB are no closer to winning than GB, which is what Favre wants to do. Think about it, what teams need a starting QB? Baltimore, Atlanta, Chicago, Minny? GB has more chances of winning than any of these teams.

That'd be awesome, but no way in hell would the Packers trade him to a division rival.

Per Favre today:

"That's the last thing I'm thinking about," Favre told SI.com. "I have no idea where that came from, but it certainly didn't come from me. I'm happy about my decision and I haven't once said, 'I wonder if I made the wrong decision.' I know it's the right one."

I find it funny that it was the LA Times to report this nonsense instead of a Wisconsin paper. Even a Chicago paper reporting this would have given it more credibility to me instead of the LA Times.
