It seems unlikely, but Dolphins coach Tony Sparano isn't completely shooting down the notion either.
Asked Thursday if he would "rule out any possibility of interest" in Favre, Sparano stammered a bit before saying that the team doesn't automatically dismiss any idea when scanning who's available.
"I can't rule anything out. OK? So, I mean, we don't rule anything out," Sparano said. "I don't know how you want me to answer that. That'll be all over the news now too, but I'm giving you the only answer I can give you."
The 41-year-old Favre has insisted he's done playing football, but talk that he possibly could return continues to bubble.
His agent, James "Bus" Cook, told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter: "Brett Favre's retired, that's all I can say. He's like Elvis now. People just won't let go."
