Rams called Brett Favre, not Tim Tebow, after Sam Bradford’s injury

After St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford suffered a torn left ACL and was lost for the rest of the season in the Rams’ 30-15 loss to the Panthers, the Rams considered several options. According to Mike Silver of the NFL Network, there was some thought about giving Tim Tebow a call, but that didn’t happen. Instead, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the Rams reached out to Bus Cook, the agent for one Brett Lorenzo Favre.

Yes, the Rams wanted to check the Ol’ Gunslinger’s temperature about a return to the NFL. The 44-year-old Favre (who is now a grandfather, by the way), hasn’t played since December 2010, when his two-year stint with the Minnesota Vikings came to an end.

Favre, of course, spent a lot of the last few years of his career wavering between retirement and non-retirement. But in this case, it appears that the retirement is real. Through his agent, Schefter reports, Favre told the Rams that he had indeed hung ‘em up for good and was heading back to the deer stand. Favre is also the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at Oak Grove High in Hattiesburg, Miss.

“He could play today,” Cook was quoted as saying of his client in late September. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically. His arms look like a blacksmith’s arms. 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.”

I hear Jeff Garcia is pimping himself, see if he'll switch to NFC.

Jeff George is available.

in serious jest, what is Jake the Snake doing? Retiring just 'cause you were traded to Tampon doesn't cut it.

Give the snake a call.
