Favre to the Dolphins?

Well, you knew it had to happen sooner or later. But this soon? 

The Dolphins may be toying with the idea of trying to lure Brett Favre out of retirement. Per Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Dolphins coach didn't issue a flat denial about whether he would consider Favre joining the team. 

The Dolphins couldn't swing a trade for Kyle Orton of the Broncos, leaving Chad Henne as the starter. Despite head coach Tony Sparano defending Henne from the boo-birds at Dolphins practice, Sparano was asked whether he'd consider trying to convince Favre to play.

"I can't rule anything out," Sparano said. "I'm giving you the only answer I can give you." 

Aaaaaand, we're off.
