Not this again. Just when you thought it was safe to mention Brett Favre without conjuring up images of yet another retirement comeback, his agent Bus Cook has sort of slashed those serene moments. Speaking in front of a group at a country club, Cook was quoted as saying Favre could play in the NFL today, as reported by AL.com. "He's in the best shape I've ever seen him in, physically," Cook noted. "His arms look like a blacksmith's arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. 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.'' This doesn't automatically mean there will be Favrewatch 47.0 for some unfortunate team, but Cook was quick to note that Favre's passion still trumped his considerable physical gifts. "And none of them, I don't care who you watch, was more exciting and loved the game (more),'' Cook said of Favre. "He told a coach one time at the Pro Bowl, Joe Pendry ... He said, 'Coach, you see all those guys out there? If they'll play for free I'll play for free. I love it, I just absolutely love it. But if they're going to get paid, I'm going to get paid for doing it too.'" Favre played for the Packers from 1992-2007 before ending up with the Jets for one season and the Vikings for two. He is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. As of midday Tuesday there were no reports of any teams contacting Favre. Lets see if it stays that way.
