Favre's agent on rumored comeback


By now, it seems much of the reporting related to the "possibility" of Brett Favre coming to the Eagles has been debunked.

Favre's agent, Bus Cook, added to the mix this morning. He told the Associated Press that talk of Favre, 41, returning to the NFL is “speculation.”

Cook said Favre hasn’t talked to him about playing another season and that as far as he knows, Favre “hasn’t talked to anybody else about a comeback.”

Favre spent most of his offseason at home in Hattiesburg, Miss. He has insisted he is done playing football, although we have heard that before.

Cook also told the Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss.: “Brett Favre retired in January. He has not talked to any teams, including Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks. He has not talked to anyone about playing football. He’s retired, period.”

Sports Illustrated's Peter King also weighed in on Favre this morning:

I think I doubt Brett Favre would come back to play another year of football, though if he's going to back up anyone anywhere, it would be Mike Vick in Philadelphia. Media maestro Howard Eskin reported the possibility of this Saturday night; Jay Glazer solidly knocked it down Sunday. And so it goes. I'm not buying it. But Favre loves Andy Reid, his Green Bay quarterback coach in 1997 and '98. He loves Doug Pederson (who was in Favre's foursome in California when Favre got the news of his father's death the day before that game in Oakland in 2003), one of Favre's good friends and now the Eagle quarterback coach. And he has nothing much to do these days. Why not hold a clipboard for $4 million for five months? I believe it will not happen. But we shall see.
