With a number of teams in need of help at the quarterback position, it makes sense that Brett Favre’s name would come up as a possible solution for these teams. Despite a recent report from Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com that mentioned that Favre would listen if the Chicago Bears were interested, Favre released a statement today putting the kibosh on the idea.
“Inspite (sic) of reports about playing with various teams, I’m enjoying retirement with my family and have no plans to play football,” Favre said in a statement, via ESPN.com. “I haven’t contacted nor have been contacted by any teams and all reports are inaccurate.”
This could be Favre’s last chance at finding any amount of interest in his return to the game but his 2010 was bad enough to keep him away from the field to begin with.
