So yesterday we shared how there was talks of the Philadelphia Eagles being interested in making Brett Favre backup to Mike Vick and how Vick tweeted his approval of the idea, although he later went to delete the tweet.
When I posted the story yesterday, Twitter went into a comical uproar and it appeared as though many people would like Bret to mean it when he says he’s “retired”.
Eagle fans, what do you think? Would you like Brett to join Vick and the Eagles? We clearly see the fan’s vote in this picture.
Like it or not it is fun to talk about Brett Favre coming out of retirement. It has become an annual event like Woodstock.
The rumor mill has been buzzing about Brett Favre possibly joining Mike Vick in Philadelphia. There’s no indication that Brett is even interested in being backup to Vick in Philly, however Howard Eskin of WIP radio reported the Eagles have “some” interest in signing Favre, but no one is saying the interest is mutual.
“I would be honored to have Brett Farve as a backup. That will be amazing Learning how to toy with defenses the way he did his whole career,” Michael Vick wrote on Twitter, which it oddly appears he has deleted.
It’s odd to see Favre willing to take the backseat, but to each his own. Perhaps he is noticing that his age is catching up and carrying a team is alot on his shoulders. Either way, no speculation or anyone on Favre’s team saying that the interest is mutual but with the NFL Lockout coming to an end soon, it’ll be interesting to see what chess pieces are moved.
