Report: Brett Favre 'possible' for Eagles

It’s that time of the year.

Time for a Brett Favre Watch.

While seemingly everyone was content to let the future Hall of Fame quarterback quietly enjoy his fun in retirement, one person has decided to stir the pot. Howard Eskin of WIP in Philadelphia said Saturday night on NBC that it’s “possible” the Eagles could reunite Favre with Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg.

Yes, we know that Favre played under both men previously with the Green Bay Packers. But the 41-year-old hasn’t wavered one bit in his dedication to retirement this time. Plus, as Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer points out, Favre has never come back for a backup job. That’s what he would hold with the Eagles behind Michael Vick.

It’s easy to make the Favre-Eagles connection because of the coaching ties. Plus, the Eagles are expected to trade Kevin Kolb and that could potentially lead the team to seek a veteran behind Vick. However, Philadelphia was very happy with Mike Kafka, a fourth-round draft pick in 2010, and there’s a good chance he will be given an opportunity to be the No. 2.

But if Eskin is right – and the Eagles are considering Favre (or sending a trio of players to Hattiesburg, Miss., to retrieve him) – wouldn’t it make for more great storylines?
