Armageddon? Rams Contact Brett Favre About Their QB Position

Retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre is living the “good life.” Working on his farm in Mississippi, the 44-year old Grandfather hasn’t played ball professionally in nearly 3 years. Despite that, and despite him having no interest to try and live out a professional version of the movie Necessary Roughness, one team contacted his agent to see if the ole’ gunslinger may want to fill their quarterback position.

I wonder what John Madden is thinking right now? At the very least, comedian Frank Calinedo just got 30 more minutes of standup material.

The St. Louis Rams, 3-4 in the NFC West, lost their starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the season after he tore his ACL in a loss at Carolina last Sunday. Following the news, team management began contacting many quarterbacks, including Ryan Griffin of the Saints (read more on that here). But the only name that could stir up more google trends than Tim Tebow would be none other than Brett Favre.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported the news, citing sources.

Favre did his best to prevent the story from spreading like a wildfire when he appeared on Sports Talk 570am in Washington D.C.

“I had a great career. I think if anything, the last year that I played was an obvious writing-on-the-wall vision for you, if you will. It was time….It’s flattering, but you know there’s no way I’m going to do that.”

Favre remains content in retirement

He also talked about his family, and the desire to remain close to them, rather than be in another city, playing for a struggling football team.

St. Louis signed Austin Davis and veteran Brady Quinn to fill the quarterback void. They join Kellen Clemons, who was already on the Rams 53 man roster.

Desperate management = St. Louis Rams.
