Favre, 49, has been out of the league since 2010 and was inducted into the Hall Of Fame in 2016.
Brett Favre is returning to the NFL????

Favre has retired three times previously: once from the Green Bay Packers, once again from the New York Jets and finally from the Minnesota Vikings. (RELATED: Aaron Rodgers Not Happy With The Packers New System, Says He Doesn’t Want To ‘Turn Off 11 Years’)
Even if he is referring to some sort of front office role in the league or even as a broadcaster, this is exciting news for football fans. I do hope, however, that “The Gunslinger” returns to play quarterback one last time.
I am not even a Vikings fan, and that eventual game-losing interception against the New Orleans Saints during the 2009 NFC Championship Game still gives me nightmares. Hopefully, Favre returns for one more Super Bowl title run.
