The Rams are backed into a corner at quarterback.
Favre, 44, reportedly declined the offer.
We're not surprised after the former Packers, Jets and Vikings passer made it crystal clear his playing days are over in a revealing conversation with Rich Eisen and the boys on NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning" last Sunday.
On Thursday, Favre told WSPZ-AM in Washington that he received interest through his agent Bus Cook, but the unnamed team (or teams) never contacted Favre directly. He "guessed" that the Rams were interested because he's familiar with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's offense.
"It's flattering, but there's no way in hell I'm going to do that," Favre said.
Favre also suggested that St. Louis wasn't the only interested party, saying, "I don't know who, but I think a couple teams have inquired."
Something's in the water. NFL Media's Jeff Garcia acknowledged he called the Browns about a comeback, and the Rams phoned a guy who'd rather roam the Mississippi farmlands this autumn on his riding mower.
