Brett Favre agent: comeback talk "speculation"

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Brett Favre's agent says talk of his client attempting another NFL comeback is just "speculation."

Bus Cook said on Monday morning that Favre hasn't talked to him about any sort of comeback and to his knowledge, Favre "hasn't talked to anybody else about a comeback" either.

The 41-year-old Favre has insisted he's done playing football, but after several years of flirting with retirement talk has spread he could return. Philadelphia's Michael Vick said on Twitter that he would be honored to have Favre as his backup.

Despite Vick's tweet (which has mysteriously disappeared off his Twitter account), Foxsports.com's Jay Glazer reports that two Eagles sources emphatically told him the rumors are false.

"(Favre is) not the option they are on," Glazer wrote.

As for the man himself, here is what Favre said last month about the prospects of returning to the NFL: "I don't want to put my body through that anymore. I've been beat up enough."

As CBSSports.com's Ryan Wilson noted, Favre has been known to say one thing and do another, but Favre's brother, Scott, has also weighed in on the matter, telling the Biloxi Sun Herald's Al Jones, "I would say there's less than a 1% chance (he would return). He is retired."

Favre spent most of his offseason at home in Hattiesburg, and has said he hasn't made a decision on his future. He suffered through an injury-plagued season with the Minnesota Vikings last year, throwing for 2,509 yards, 11 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.
