Favre on Dolphins: 'I don't have any interest'

It's been 24 hours since we last spoke about Brett Favre so, naturally, it's time for an update. Days after Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne had to endure "We want Orton!" chants from the hometown fans, head coach Tony Sparano, tongue planted firmly in cheek (we think), was asked about Favre joining the Dolphins.

"I can't rule anything out...I'm giving you the only answer I can give you," Sparano told reporters, per Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

We know, we know. Sparano could've diffused the situation by just saying "I'm not even going to dignify that with an answer." Instead, he was vague, which sent the media (us included, clearly) into a Favre frenzy and prompted the ol' gunslinger's agent, Bus Cook to later observe, "Brett Favre's retired, that's all I can say. He's like Elvis now. People just won't let go."

For real.

On Friday, Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald happened to be in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. As long as he was in the area, he figured he might as well ask Favre about his professional football hopes and dreams.

“I haven’t heard anything, and I don’t have any interest,” Favre snapped, quickly retreating into a pickup truck. “No.”

Favre then posed a question that at one time or another has been on the lips of every NFL fan. “You’re from Miami?” Favre asked, when introduced to a reporter from the Miami Herald. “Don’t you have anything better to do?”

Fair question. Then again this is what happens when you make a habit of un-retiring every offseason.

Two sources told Darlington that Favre hasn't been working out at the local high school field, as he had done in the past, but instead "spent a good chuck of time vacationing in Wyoming."

We'd like to think that this will end any "Favre's returning!?" talk but we know better. In the meantime, the Dolphins have signed QB Kevin O'Connell, the Patriots 2008 third-round pick who also spent time with the Lions and the Jets.

Favre on Dolphins: 'I don't have any interest'

News Flash: BRETT FAVRE IS RETIRED ! I'm one of the ones who don't want to let go, but i know its the truth. He should have stayed his butt in Hattiesburg last year, for real.

Now,,I am interested in quarterbacking for the Dolphins, All i want is a nice condo on the beach, the furnishings picked by me and paid for by the Dolphins, a fully-stocked kitchen when i get there, and $300,000 tax-free. That's all i want; i'm not hard to please.
