Brandt: Favre Might Be Interested In Returning

(CBS) It’s that time of year again. Time for the Brett Favre rumors to start swirling.

This year, it’s not Favre who is starting the chatter, but rather personnel guru Gil Brandt. In a live chat Tuesday, Brandt, the former vice president of personnel for the Dallas Cowboys, said he believes Favre would be interested in playing this season, but he’s not sure there is a team out there who wants him.

“I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning,” Brandt said. “But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.”

If Favre did come back, Brandt doesn’t envision the quarterback making a return to the Vikings.

“I think Brett is still a good quarterback, but I’d consider him a descending quarterback,” he said. “It’s awfully hard for him to go to a team and be a backup. The Vikings must start Christian Ponder this season to get him some experience. And they’re not going to get Favre in there to babysit Ponder.”

    1st of all, take this with a grain of salt, because Gil Brandt is a bona fide BOOB. I’ve personally read some horrendously erroneous statements of his in the past- ones that I will not bore you with here- just trust me.

    2nd- DEATH TO FAVRE!

    that is all
