Settle down, Vikings fans. Brett Favre is not coming to save you from Christian Ponder.
But he could if he wanted to, according to his agent, Bus Cook. Cook made it very clear that No. 4 is not interested in staging another comeback to the NFL, but he revealed that Favre could land a job in the league if he sought one out, as he is at his physical peak at the age of 43.
“Today, he could play today,” Cook said at an event Monday night, via the Mobile-Press Register. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically.
“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.”
Unfortunately for the Jaguars, Browns and the like, Favre’s arm of a blacksmith likely won’t be slinging any footballs in the near future.
