Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre might not be ready for retirement after all.

USA Today's Nate Davis, reporting on the NFL blog The Huddle, looks at the chances of Favre coming back for a 21st NFL season and quotes an NFL.com analyst.

"I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning," NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt wrote in an NFL.com chat Tuesday. "But I don't see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter."

In his blog post, Davis wonders whether Favre would return to the Minnesota Vikings as a backup, or perhaps mentor another young quarterback.

Davis writes: "Might Favre consider Carolina, which is close to his Mississippi home and would allow him to break in rookie QB Cam Newton, who's also represented by Favre's agent, Bus Cook?"
