While reports surfaced over the weekend that the Philadelphia Eagles would be interested signing quarterback Brett Favre to be Michael Vick's backup, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting (via Pro Football Talk) that the Eagles are not at all interested in bringing in Brett Favre.
Over at SB Nation Philly, Cody Benjamin breaks down both sides of the argument on Favre. On the pro side, Favre would fill the void left when the Eagles trade Kevin Kolb after the NFL lockout ends. But the negatives would include having to deal with the accompanying Favre ego and questions over how he would handle being a backup to Michael Nick.
Either this shows the absurdity of what we need to discuss during the lockout, as Benjamin suggests, or it might just be a sign that we're just in time for the start of training camp. Nothing screams "NFL training camp time" than a Brett Favre "Will he or won't he?" story.
