There may still be a chance that Brett Favre returns, according to


Assuming the impending lockout is resolved, former Cowboys vice president of player personnel Gil Brandt said that he wouldn’t rule out the 20-year veteran eyeing another NFL comeback.


“I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning,” Brandt told during his weekly chat. “But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.”


Favre struggled mightily over the course of the 2010-11 season, posting just a 69.9 QB rating in his second year with Minnesota. He also saw his consecutive games streak end at 297.


Brandt added that he didn’t expect Minnesota, which used its first-round pick on Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder, to be one of the teams interested in bringing Favre back.
