Campbell: Favre will play until he's 60

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Quarterback Jason Campbell is the resident Brett Favre expert in Skins camp because he grew up about 20 minutes away from Favre's farm in Hattiesburg, Miss. Last offseason, Campbell and his family even went fishing in one of Favre's tanks. He said Favre was riding an ATV somewhere on the property and never made it over to say hello.

Anyway, Matt Terl of redskins.com just posted a transcript of Campbell's comments on his highly underrated blog. Campbell was asked how quarterbacks Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson must be feeling about Favre's signing.

"That's tough, man. That's hard to swallow," Campbell said. "Those guys been out there working hard, doing everything they need to do to prepare themselves for the season. But at the same time, like I said this offseason, at the end of the day you've gotta know it's a business, and there's gonna business decisions made and there's gonna be things the come your way that you probably weren't expecting. You just gotta handle it with gratitude and continue to move forward, don't get down on yourself and don't get depressed about it."

Pretty good advice from a high-quality individual. And by the way, we'll be talking to Campbell via phone later this week. When he was asked if Favre would ever go away, the Skins quarterback said, "He might play until he's about 60."

And at this rate, he may be right. Why would anyone believe Favre the next time he retires -- even if that's at age 45. He may become the Julio Franco of the NFL.

One more thing: We had a chance to interview Titans head coach Jeff Fisher today on 103.3 ESPN in Dallas on Tuesday. I asked him about Michael Vick and Albert Haynesworth. I'll try to track down the audio for you guys and post it Wednesday.
