The Rams now say they were just kidding about being interested in Brett Favre
As a Rams source mentioned to NFL.com writer Ian Rapoport, "It was just a joke. It was just a throwaway line. Doesn't anyone have a sense of humor?"
Does anyone actually buy that line?
The Rams definitely contacted Favre's agent, Bus Cook, and asked about Favre. Perhaps they were calling about one of Cook's other clients, but it seems unlikely. According to his website, Cook doesn't represent any other quarterbacks who are currently unemployed.
Personally, I think the Rams are just trying to save face, since Favre basically laughed off the idea of coming back, and it looks a bit ridiculous that the Rams would even make that call.
What do you think? Was this legit? Did the Rams really consider trying to make Favre their starting QB? Or was it really just a joke?
