As always, Ol 'Gunslinger does the fun, even on a random Tuesday afternoon in the quiet part of the NFL offseason.
Brett Favre came back for a few fleeting minutes on Tuesday to play in the NFL. At least that's what a post on his Instagram account said. And considering Favre's famous retirement waffle, which seemed to span about a decade near the end of his career, you didn't really know if he was fun.

Alas, the Instagram record says he would be back to the 2020 season was deleted.

Internet has fun with Brett Favre announcement
Favre will be 50 in October. He was clearly finished in 2010, 41 years old. Even if Favre had the crazy idea he wanted to play again, no one signs a 50-year-old quarterback that was made nine years ago.
But it was fun. Favre's post was deleted a few minutes after it went up. All sane immediately assumed he was hacked. Or it was a joke that was bad. Or something. But the internet had some jokes.
So Favre doesn't come out of retirement to play in the 50s. It was fun while it lasted.
