It’s one thing when he was contemplating whether or not he should play football or retire, but the fact that former NFL quarterback and future Hall of Famer Brett Favre keeps finding his name linked to numerous teams in need of help at quarterback is getting a bit ridiculous. Luckily, one of the latest rumors involving yet another Favre comeback was laid to rest quickly before it could become too hot of a topic.
After rumors swirled about a possible fourth comeback after retirement, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald made it clear on Thursday there is absolutely no chance Favre will come out of retirement and play for the Miami Dolphins this season after talking to one of his sources. Not only did the Dolphins miss out on the chance to acquire Kyle Orton from the Denver Broncos, Tony Sparano recently hinted that he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of signing Favre if he were interested–but the Dolphins wasted no time making it clear they had no intention of bringing Favre on for the 2011 season.
Clearly, there are a lot of questions to be answered for Miami at quarterback with all of the uncertainty surrounding Chad Henne at quarterback–but Favre would have been a poor choice on their end. If you thought Dolphins fans were already upset with the team’s failed attempt to land Orton, imagine their reaction if the team decided to bring Favre on instead.
