In an NFL.com chat on Tuesday, analyst and former VP of player personnel for the Cowboys Gil Brandt said Brett Favre could be interested in returning, again.

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

Favre retired, again, following the 2010 season. The 41-year-old is the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns. He played in 13 games last season, throwing 11 touchdowns and 19 interceptions while battling injuries.

The way we see it

This is simply Brandt's opinion in a chat, not an NFL.com news report. Considering everything Favre put his body through last year (not to mention, throughout his entire career), another return would be even more shocking than his previous ones. While there are a handful teams that are in need of a starting quarterback, we doubt any team would want to go through what Minnesota went through last season, should Favre attempt to return. Despite Brandt's view, all signs still point to "no" when it comes to Favre giving it one more go.
