Report: Favre re-thinking retirement
5 hours, 4 minutes ago

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.

Not sure how true this report is, but I thought it was pretty funny. "Old" and "Retired" must not be words in Brett's vocabulary.

I couldn't see farve in another uniform.
I wonder if a return to his original team wouldn't be so far fetched?
The Falcons could use him.

The NFL Network and Profootballtalk.com have confirmed that it was Brett Favre's agent, Bus Cook, who spread rumors about his client possibly coming out of retirement.
Cook initially denied an L.A. Times report that he approached teams about trading for Favre. The writer of the report, Sam Farmer, said Cook was the "source" he cited. Cook would stand to make money if Favre continued to play. Cook also said at the time of Favre's retirement that the Packers did little to try to convince him to play. Favre denied all that in his final presser.


now agents have nothing to do in the offseason?

hope it's not true he did that, his name would be stained forever as an nfl agent
