The 41-year-old most recently played for the Minnesota Vikings, where he became the epicenter of a media circus for allegedly texting lewd photos to reporter Jenn Sterger. And though he officially retired once again on January 17, NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt ignited rumors on his Sirius Radio program that it may not be the end.
“I do think Farve would be interested in talking to a team about
returning,” he said during the July 6 broadcast. “But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him
back as a starter.”
Given his penchant team-hopping, this isn’t the most outlandish idea — but it does seem odd. And it had fans reacting passionately (both positive and negative) on Twitter all day.
So if there is any merit to this discussion, would you want to see Favre return to the game? Or is he too old and suffering from too soiled a reputation at this point?
