Favre came out of retirement in 2008 and was traded from the Packers to the Jets. He signed with the Vikings as a free agent in 2009 and called it quits after the 2010 season.

The Rams are seeking a replacement for starting quarterback Sam Bradford, who was placed on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury.

Favre threw for 71,838 yards and 508 touchdowns – both NFL records -- during his 20-year career and was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times.
