Citing a team source and a source informed of the "talks," NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL Network's "Around the League Live" that St. Louis only asked about Favre's interest as a one-line wisecrack.
"It was just a joke," a Rams source told Rapoport. "It was just a throwaway line. Doesn't anyone have a sense of humor?'"
We do! And we appreciate any football mirth that evolves into the potential midseason resurrection of a former player who is edging toward Old Man Withers and away from professional quarterback.
