(FootballStL) – While the Rams seemed desperate when reports emerged the team talked about bringing in Tim Tebow after quarterback Sam Bradford went out for the season with a torn ACL, it appears they really were.
ESPN reports the team called future Hall-of-Famer Brett Favre to gauge his interest in coming out of retirement.
But the 44-year-old, known for his retiring and unretiring ways, told the Rams he’s called it quits for good.
In an interview with Washington, D.C. radio station SportsTalk 570 on Thursday morning Favre said he was flattered to get the call, "but there's no way in hell I'm going to do that."
According to ESPN, "One source familiar with the Rams' conversations said that, if Favre took them up on their interest, 'it could break Twitter.'"
So for the time being, Brady Quinn remains the team’s backup to “starter” Kellen Clemens.
