Brett Favre Rumors: The Jay Cutler Injury May Open Door For Another Comeback

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chicago Bears, struggling in the absence of starting QB Jay Cutler, might be able to acquire former NFL superstar Brett Favre:

Favre, who lives in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, retired following the 2010 season after Bears defensive lineman Corey Wootton delivered a season-ending sack and concussion on December 20, 2010. The former Green Bay Packers quarterback turned 42 in 2011 after having played 16 years in the NFL.

Though the Bears have repeatedly affirmed their trust in the current quarterback staff -- which includes fourth-year pro Caleb Hanie, 32-year-old veteran Josh McCown, and rookie Nathan Enderle -- continued disappointment from the Bears offense could force Chicago to make an additional move.

Since Jay Cutler's injury, the Bears have gone 0-2, scoring only 3 points in Week 13's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
