Never mind whether the St. Louis Rams were serious.

If Brett Favre ever wanted to come out of retirement -- yet again -- we'd have found out this week.

The St. Louis Rams reportedly reached out to Favre's agent the other day to see if the Hall of Fame-destined quarterback cared to jump back into the fray.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, however, on Thursday cited a Ram official who said it was "just a joke" when they asked Favre's old agent about his interest, after inquiring about an active player.

Whether it was a joke or not, the 44-year-old answered no. A flat turn-down.

His answer is the nub of the story.

Like me, I bet your first reaction to the Favre/Rams news was, "Yeah, right!" And then you thought for a minute and went, "Oh my god, Favre wants to come back."

Untrue. Thankfully.
