The St. Louis Rams lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford to an ACL tear on Sunday and they've reportedly reached out to former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre


Favre, 44, hasn't played since a concussion ended his career in 2010 on Monday Night Football at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium shortly after the Metrodome's roof collapsed. He threw for more than 500 touchdowns and 70,000 passing yards in his 20-year career, most of which came with the Green Bay Packers. 

Favre's not entirely to blame, if at all, for the publicity as his agent Bus Cook stirred the pot a month ago when he bragged up the former star's workout routine and alleged ability to still play. 

Rams coach Jeff Fisher reportedly denied any interest in free agent -- yet young -- quarterback Tim Tebow, but apparently still tried to see if Father Time was available.
