Earlier today, fans got excited over the news that Brett Favre was returning to the NFL – specifically, on the field. That’s right, the 20-year pro posted that he is going to suit up and take over the starting QB position for one of the NFL teams that could use a little help! Psych. Sorry guys, it’s not really happening. Unfortunately, someone hacked the legendary quarterback’s Instagram account and led to plenty of broken hearts. While we feel a *little* bad for those who fell for the post, we have to question your judgement – he’s 49. That age would be a stretch even for a kicker, and we know those guys’ careers go on forever.
But now we’re wondering who the fans would love to see come out of retirement and grace the field once again? Jason Witten already announced his comeback, do you think Tony Romo or Matt Forte still have a few years left in them? We’re sure if he really wanted to, Calvin Johnson could add some more stats to his “Megatron” status. While all these could be fun prospects, we’re sure that there are a good number of fans out there that think once you hang up your jersey, it’s hung up for good. Let this serve as a reminder to all you fans out there – don’t use “password” for all your passwords!
