GULFPORT, Miss. (AP)—If the Green Bay Packers are ravaged by injuries this season, Brett Favre might consider returning should the team reach out to him.

“It would be hard to pass up, I guess,” he told the Biloxi (Miss.) Sun Herald. “But three months from now, say that presents itself, I may say, you know what, I’m so glad I made that decision. I’m feel very comfortable in what I’m doing and my decision.

“Yeah, I can probably be up there doing that and playing, but again, I don’t know. It’s only speculating. I think the world of that team. I had a lot of fun, not only this year, but over my career.”

But if Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury?

“Aaron has fallen into a great situation,” Favre said. “And if that opportunity presented itself and they did call, it would be tempting. And I very well could be enticed do it.”

Favre understands the kind of challenge he would face should he opt to go back to the NFL after ending his record-setting 17-year career. And he made it clear he is not changing his mind at this time.

“But to think that if they called me in October and told me, ‘Hey, we need you this week.’ That would be hard,” Favre said in a story that appeared on the paper’s Web site on Tuesday. “I’m sure mentally, I would be refreshed. I’d be away from it for a long time. But mentally versus physically, the last thing I’d want to do is go up and it’s ‘Oh this is great’ and all that stuff and me be excited and then just flop.

“You just can’t show up and play.”

There has been a steady flow of speculation that Favre would have a change of heart in the wake of the March 4 announcement the league’s only three-time MVP was retiring.

“I guess the best response would be, right now no,” he said of a possible return to the game.

Favre added he would not return unless he was in shape.

“It would be hard to go up there at 38. It was hard to stay in shape. I say that, I worked out and I worked out hard,” he said. “Week in and week out, I was just drained. Finally, for the first time, I felt, not that 38 is old, but I looked around at practice and these guys are bouncing around. And I practiced every day and all the time people would ask me … `How do you do it? Inside I’m saying, ‘I have no idea.’ It’s a struggle.”

Speculation but still he could be back sooner than expected if injuries occured.

Honestly I don't think its him though, its more so the media. Its not like Brett Favre is putting this stuff out on the internet.

But yeah I admit its getting a little riddicilious.

I agree with everyone who is sick of hearing about Favre. This is Aaron Rodgers team now. Favre didnt make these rumors and he also said he would have to be in shape to consider it. Now what if Rodgers is out from week 8-10 would u bring Favre in? What happens when Rodgers is back healthy?? Would all the Favre crazy fans keep wanting Favre to play over Rodgers? Yea im sick of it and Rodgers better not get hurt.

his retirement papers still havent been filed....

I think thats the least of his worries right now. He probably wants to just enjoy the family and relax. Anyone I have seen go through retirement that loved their job went through a very slow and thoughful process before saying goodbye to something you have done for so long.

I don't like this at all. Sure, he wasn't the one who wrote this article or asked him the question, but he had to know what would happen if he answered the way he did. I wish he could just say, "Nope, I'm retired. As much as I love the game, nothing could bring me back."

if Aaron went down with an injury why wouldnt the Packers want Favre who else do they got?

the sports media right now is raping the corpse that is Favre's active career. He retired, it's dead. Now stop humping it please. Kthnx.

If Rodgers got a season ending injury, I would sure hope Favre would come back.

Exactly, he knew the reaction that this was going to get.

I can't believe he hasn't gotten pissed at his agent Bus Cook for all the **** he's involved Brett in lately. He was a key talker in the Randy Moss situation too.

Jesus Christ, all he says is that it'd be hard to turn down if they asked him. How does that equate to him wanting to come back?

I hope he stays on the shelf forever already.

I don't think i could stand one more season of every freakin "NFL Analyst"
slurping this guy's kool-aid like if he's the next coming of Moses.

Stay retired Brett. Please.

He's not talking about coming back there dumbass. He simply said that if the Packers desperately needed him, he would think about coming back. I'm sure this is after he'd been asked fifty different ways on whether or not he would consider coming back. Everybody needs to calm the **** down.

Umm, they have.

If you're sick of hearing about this it's 100% the media's fault. Brett's just answering questions.

Really, what do you want him to say? "**** Green Bay. If they begged me to come back, I'd simply hang up the phone."

I think I just heard on NFL Live that the Packers are retiring Favre's number on the home opener.
