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.

"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."
