Favre To Philly? Eskin: ‘It’s Possible’

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Brett Favre to backup Michael Vick?

According to the official Twitter page of Sportsradio 610 WIP’s Howard Eskin, sources told him that the Philadelphia Eagles are apparently interested in bringing Favre to the City of Brotherly Love.

On his Twitter page, Eskin wrote that it was “possible” that the Birds would have interest in bringing Favre aboard once they trade Kevin Kolb.

Eskin tweeted: “Just reported on TV Eagles have some interest in b farve once they trade kolb. Sources told me its possible. Not sure what farve thinks”

It is widely expected that Kolb will be traded once the NFL lockout ends.

Team officials are not talking about the Favre to Philly rumors.

However, current Eagles starting quarterback Michael Vick also took to his Twitter page and said he “would be honored” to have Favre as his backup in Philly. The tweet was later deleted from Vick’s Twitter page.

Favre finished last season with the Minnesota Vikings and said after the season that he was done playing. Haven’t we heard that before?

So what do you think? Do you want Brett Favre as the Eagles backup QB? Share your thoughts below.

    First off, it’s spelled Favre. Secondly, he threw for 446 yards in a game, a personal best, just this last season; and he did that with only percy harvin as a wide out, slot receivers who will ever even have their names mentioned on espn, the brick handed shiancoe, and the worst offensive line in the nfl. So clearly he is not washed up, unless you don’t understand football. And thirdly, the dude is retired and hasn’t said a single thing about coming back; it’s people like you guys that try to feign this drama queen attitude into him, but it simply does not he exist. He’s a farmer for God’s sake, it doesn’t get more down to earth than that.

    No no no no no! I’d rather have A-Rod as a Phillie than that smug wash up as backup QB!!

  3. SR says:

    I switch games when Farve is playing…now I guess I have to switch teams if and when he signs with the Eagles!! He needs to get a life….

    Bette Larve … new mascot?

  5. Mike says:

    I wish Favre would just get a life. I don’t understand why he doesn’t just learn to enjoy retirement. Is his marriage that bad that he has to stay out of the house and on the road?

  6. Tony says:

    I think it would be a distraction and a bad move.

  7. Mark says:

    The world is done with Farve. Let us rest in peace. Please.

  8. sheriff says:

    Farve is more washed up than a pair of cheap blue jeans. He should be on social security this pervert.

    1. Rich says:

      My name is Rich F and I love the Cowboys!!

  10. TERRY says:

    Who cares, its Baseball season!!

  11. Dave Hollister says:

    If Farve comes to the Eagles, I’ll be rooting for the Cowboys this year

      I’ve been a Green Bay fan since the Vick move.
