Really, all it takes is for one meddling columnist to connect some wayward dots and then … sound the Brett Favre Watch!
Yes, we’re talking about Favre. Again. And you thought this was over.
It all started Thursday when Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel laid out a list of reasons why the Dolphins should put in a phone call to Hattiesburg, Miss. It escalated when Omar Kelly posed the question to Dolphins coach Tony Sparano, who did nothing to squash the story.
“I can’t rule anything out. … I’m giving you the only answer I can give you,” Sparano said about possibly exploring Favre, according to a Tweet from Kelly.
“We always have our eyes open, and are always exploring possibilities,” Sparano added when asked if the team is still looking for QBs.
Yikes. And Chad Henne woke up this morning probably thinking things couldn’t get any worse.
But NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora jumped into the fray and checked in with Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, who when asked if the Dolphins or another team could entice Favre to return, responded with “He’s retired.”
So, in other words, there’s really no closure here.
