Favre’s Agent: Talk Of Comeback Is ‘Speculation’

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Brett Favre’s agent says talk of his client attempting another NFL comeback is just “speculation.”

Bus Cook said on Monday morning that Favre hasn’t talked to him about any sort of comeback and to his knowledge, Favre “hasn’t talked to anybody else about a comeback” either.

The 41-year-old Favre has insisted he’s done playing football, but after several years of flirting with retirement talk has spread he could return.

Philadelphia’s Michael Vick said on Twitter that he would be honored to have Favre as his backup.

Favre spent most of his offseason at home in Hattiesburg, and has said he hasn’t made a decision on his future.

He suffered through an injury-plagued season with the Minnesota Vikings last year, throwing for 2,509 yards, 11 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

    To all Bret Favre pundits and soothsayers:
    YAWN!!! Put up or be quiet about coming back! Coaching yes! But no more expended malarkey about playing again. How many times do you have to be beat-up or have your head’s bell rung!??

    Brett we love ya but comeback to football, anywhere, as a coach. You could really help the game that way!

    He’s only 41? Man, it seems like he’s been around forever.
