Report: Favre might not be retired just yet

Oh boy...You just knew this stuff would happen. As long as Brett has not yet officially filed his retirement papers with the league and players' union -- which he hasn't -- the possibility of his return to play continues to bubble up.

The latest version is a story in today's Los Angeles Times by Sam Farmer stating that, "Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, who announced his retirement last month after 17 seasons, could be weighing a comeback with another team. According to NFL sources, Favre's agent has quietly inquired with teams about their interest in trading for the three-time NFL most valuable player."

OK. What does Brett's agent have to say? According to the article, "Reached today, agent James 'Bus' Cook said he was not aware of Favre's interest in resuming his career. 'That's news to me,' Cook said. 'I don't think that has anything to do with anything. He's retired, period, point blank.'"

In addition, the Packers still hold the rights to Brett, of course. And while they could trade him to another you really think that would happen if Brett still wanted to play? Not a chance.
