One rather important member of the Eagles has weighed on the rumor that the team is interested in Brett Favre joining the team as a backup quarterback.
“I would be honored to have Brett Farve as a backup. That will be amazing Learning how to toy with defenses the way he did his whole career,” Michael Vick wrote on Twitter.
First things first: There is no indication Favre would be interested in joining the Eagles as a backup. Howard Eskin of WIP radio reported the Eagles have “some” interest in signing Favre, but no one is saying the interest is mutual. Yet.
It’s hard to imagine Favre gladly accepting a backup role in any scenario, although it makes more sense for him to do it under old pal Andy Reid.
At least it makes as much sense as FavreWatch starting once again now that the lockout appears to be ending.
UPDATE: Vick appears to have deleted the tweet. Odd.
