Ridiculous Rumor of the Day: Could Favre play for the Bills?
A Fox Sports blog is looking for some clickbait and they got at least one click from me with their Brett Favre coming out of retirement to play for the Bills story.
But, Favre did tell SI that he could still play at age 45. Now, what Favre believes and what everyone else believes are two different stories. Favre said:
“I think I could play,” Favre said. “As far as throwing. Of course, we’re not trying to start some he’s-coming-out-of-retirement deal.”
“Do I think I could play and lead a team? Look, no. But I could play. I could make all the throws I made before, I just couldn’t throw it near as far, but that never matters anyway.”
So would the Bills consider Favre? As insane as it sounds, ESPN.com reported that the St. Louis Rams asked Favre if he’d be come out of retirement following a season-ending knee injury to Sam Bradford. Favre declined and, well, the rest is history. Lets hope the Bills aren’t in that dire of a situation that they even dial Favre’s digits unless he were coming in to advise Manuel and Taylor.
