Speaking Thursday, Brett Favre said there's "no way" he's going to play in the NFL again.
Favre was responding to reports that the Rams contacted him in the wake of Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury. He said he's told his agent not to even pass along inquiries anymore because he's done. "I don't know who, but I think a couple teams have inquired," he said. "It's flattering, but there's no way I'm gonna do that." Favre is 44 years old and hasn't played since 2010, when he went 5-8 with the Vikings. He's a literal grandfather.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Brett Favre declined an offer from the Rams this week.

This is not a joke. The Rams, who just lost Sam Bradford to a torn ACL, reportedly called 44-year-old Favre to see if he would quarterback their offense for the final nine games. Somewhat surprisingly, he said no thanks. Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer knows Favre from his one failed year (2008) with the Jets. Although Favre hasn't played since 2010, he always loved the spotlight. Perhaps if the Rams were 6-1 and not 3-4, Favre would have taken a harder look. Kellen Clemens is going to start for St. Louis in Week 8.

Brett Favre's agent believes he could "play today," and that he's "in the best shape I've ever seen him in, physically."

"His arms look like a blacksmith's arms," Bus Cook said Monday. "He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. He runs four or five miles a day. He's coaching at the high school and they're undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today." It's unclear if Cook is describing Favre or The Most Interesting Man In The World. Either way, Favre's playing days are through, though he could probably give Blaine Gabbert a run for his money in Jacksonville. Favre turns 44 in October.

Brett Favre will be a part of NFL Network's Super Bowl coverage.

It's the first we've heard of Favre in nearly a year. That shatters all previous records. However, if Favre does well Sunday, it's possible he'll sign on for a bigger role at the league's in-house network. Favre turns 43 in October.

The Packers plan to retire Brett Favre's No. 4 jersey "in a year or two," when it's meaningful to the retired quarterback.

It's easy to see why the Packers aren't rushing to retire the jersey. They will want to be 100 percent confident that Favre isn't going to attempt another comeback. Perhaps more importantly, it provides more time to soothe the hard feelings that developed between Favre and GM Ted Thompson. As a three-time MVP, holder of many NFL records, and future Hall of Famer, Favre is certainly deserving of the honor.

Brett Favre reiterated on 1340 The Fan in Lubbock, Texas on Monday that he is happy in retirement and has no plans to come back.

Favre, 42, was the subject of reckless rumors spread by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel last August that claimed he might quarterback the Dolphins. It never happened, and he drew no interest from any teams. "I was just burned out," Favre said, referring to 2010. "This season, being removed and having a bird’s eye view but not being involved was eye-opening because I didn’t miss it a bit."

Retired QB Brett Favre said in a Tuesday evening statement that he has no plans to attempt a comeback.

"In spite of reports about playing with various teams, I'm enjoying retirement with my family and have no plans to play football," Favre said. The denial comes one day after ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright reported Favre "would listen" if contacted by the Bears. The Bears quickly denied any interest. Although skepticism will continue to abound that the future Hall-of-Famer is actually retired, it would be shocking if he ever plays another down.

The Bears have no interest in retired QB Brett Favre, a source tells ESPN's Ed Werder.

ESPN Chicago reported Monday that Favre "would listen" if the Bears contacted him, adding that the 42-year-old has been working out and staying in shape. However, Chicago won't even entertain the possibility despite Caleb Hanie's six interceptions and 40.8 passer rating over the last two weeks. They appear set on riding Hanie while hoping Jay Cutler (thumb) can get back before the season is over.

Citing a source familiar with Brett Favre, ESPN Chicago reports that Favre "would listen" if the Bears contacted him about playing quarterback for the 7-5 team down the stretch.

ESPN Chicago's Mike C. Wright makes it clear that the Bears haven't contacted Favre yet, and reports it's "highly doubtful" they will. However, a source told ESPN Chicago that Favre "has been working out and staying in shape." While coach Lovie Smith denies the Bears are interested in adding a quarterback, their pursuit of Kyle Orton suggests they feel they can do better at the position. Through two starts this season, Caleb Hanie is 29-of-60 (48.3%) for 387 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions. He's taken six sacks and fumbled once.

Texans GM Rick Smith confirmed to SI's Peter King that Houston has no interest in retired quarterback Brett Favre.

"I don’t want to bring the circus to town," Smith told King. Smith also said Favre has "no interest" in another comeback and hasn't even thrown a football in a month. Smith's knowledge of Favre's recent activities suggests the Texans have indeed explored the possibility. We still don't expect Favre to play football again this season, or ever again for that matter.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Brett Favre will not be coming out of retirement to play for the Texans.

There haven't been any concrete reports about Favre and the Texans, just speculation. "No truth to it. ... It's not happening," wrote Schefter. Favre turned 42 in October. Perhaps when he reaches 50, he'll stop being linked to teams in need of a quarterback.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Brett Favre did not receive "a single call" from an NFL team after the lockout gauging his interest in another comeback.

"I haven't heard from anybody saying, 'We'd like to talk to you about Brett,' " Favre's agent Bus Cook said. "There have been rumors about Philadelphia, Miami, Indianapolis. But we have not had any calls." Cook did not say if Favre would have been receptive to those calls had they happened. This shouldn't be the last you'll hear of Favre, but it seems like we're getting close.

SI's Peter King says he's hearing that Brett Favre is "being slightly tempted about playing football again."

We would ignore this if it wasn't from King, one of most respected NFL writers ever. He says that while Favre won't pursue anything, the 41-year-old might consider returning if a desperate coach calls him up. Considering the Miami Herald's Jeff Darlington just saw Favre hobbling around in Mississippi, we're still very skeptical.

Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald tracked down Brett Favre in Hattiesburg (MS) on Friday, and Favre confirmed to Darlington that he's not coming back to the NFL.

"I haven't heard anything, and I don't have any interest," Favre told Darlington. "No. You're from Miami? Don't you have anything better to do?" You wouldn't have known it from ridiculous rumors spread lately, but Favre is retired. For good. Darlington closely observed Favre, and he's looking like an old man. "Brett Favre walks slowly and gingerly," described Darlington, "every step taking considerable effort." Favre has no business returning to football at his age or in his physical condition. It's over.

The agent for retired QB Brett Favre addressed rumors his client might come out of retirement in a statement on Thursday.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel is irresponsibly spreading info that Favre could end up quarterbacking the Dolphins this season. "Brett Favre's retired, that's all I can say," said agent Bus Cook. "He's like Elvis now. People just won't let go." We're confident Favre won't be playing in the NFL this season.
