Brett Favre ‘Could Play’ In The NFL Today, Agent Says
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre isn’t about to make another comeback.
Be he could if he wanted to, Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, said during a speaking engagement this week in Alabama.
“Today, he could play today,” Cook said, according to the Mobile Press-Register. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically.”
Favre was traded to the New York Jets in August 2008 after his retirement from the Green Bay Packers failed to stick. He played two seasons in Minnesota (2009-10) before calling it quits for good in January 2011.
“His arms look like a blacksmith’s arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day,” Cook said. “He runs four or five miles a day. He’s coaching at the high school and they’re undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today.”
Favre, who will turn 44 next month, holds an NFL record with 297 consecutive starts.
