Brett Favre: Is He or is He Not Coming Back?

Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre's comeback rumors took a turn today when former teammate Ryan Longwell spoke with the media.

The comeback rumors had begun to heat-up after NFL Network contributor and former Cowboys GM wrote in a chat on Tuesday that he believed Favre would be interested in returning if the situation was right.

But today the news is in a far different tone with a much closer source. According to an interview with Fox Sports North, Longwell is pretty certain No. 4 isn't going to make a return:

"I talk to him at least once a week. We are good friends. He is doing great; his family is doing great. He is really excited about not having any questions about whether he is coming back or not, there is no doubt. He is really doing well."

Even longtime Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt gave his piece during a live chat interview with on Tuesday on what the chances of Favre returning were, he replied, "I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning. But I don't see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter."
