The St. Louis Rams called Brett Favre's agent to see if he was interested in playing for them and ending his retirement after Sam Bradford suffered a season-ending knee injury, but he wasn't interested and rejected their overture, according to ESPN.
Favre, 44, remains retired. He's a grandfather living in Mississippi coaching high school football.
So, the Rams signed quarterbacks Brady Quinn and Austin Davis. Kellen Clemens will start
"It's flattering, but you know there's no way I'm going to that," Favre told ESPN 570 Radio in Washington. "I had a great career. I think if anything, the last year that I played was an obvious writing-on-the-wall vision for you, if you will, It was time."
"My family took a back seat for 20 years. My 14-year-old daughter plays volleyball and is in the ninth grade and will be playing again the next three years. I'm like a yardstick, I'm so stiff."
