Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that after the Rams lost quarterback Sam Bradford to a season-ending knee injury on Sunday, the team contacted Favre to see if he was interested in coming out of retirement (again). Favre, however, told the Rams that he’s not interested.
St. Louis called Brett Favre, asking if the 44-year-old QB if he would be willing to play. Favre declined. More to story on ESPN all day.

Favre, who turned 44 this month, recently said he was “no way considering playing.” So it’s not surprising that he rebuffed the Rams’ advances.
Alex Marvez of Fox Sports confirms.
I've confirmed ESPN report i.e. Rams approaching agent about Brett Favre coming out of retirement. Rams have moved on; Favre has no interest

Rams aren't really commenting on the ESPN report of them contacting Brett Favre, but certainly haven't had anyone deny it to me, either …
