St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher would rather not discuss this week’s news that the Rams reached out to Brett Favre to see if he would be interested in coming out of retirement.
Asked by reporters about the Favre news, Fisher said team policy was to confirm that the Rams worked out quarterback Tyler Thigpen and signed quarterbacks Austin Davis and Brady Quinn, but that the Rams wouldn’t confirm any other conversations they had with any other players or agents.
“During the process I didn’t disclose any information, and I don’t feel a need to disclose any information after the process,” Fisher said. “That’s how we are. I’d be happy to talk about Thigpen, who we worked out that we disclosed, and the two that we signed. That’s consistent with our philosophy and our policy.”
Asked if he was denying the report that the Rams had reached out to Favre, Fisher tried to turn the attention toward the Rams’ upcoming game on Monday night, saying, “I don’t talk about the process. Do you want to talk about the Seahawks?”
One reporter then asked Fisher, “Would Brett have been ready for the Seahawks?”
Fisher answered, “Nice try.”
Which is apparently the same thing Bus Cook said when the Rams reached out about Favre.
