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?
