HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay posted on his Twitter account that he is in Brett Favre’s hometown, but the quarterback’s agent says he has not heard of any interest from the Colts.
The 41-year-old Favre retired in the offseason after a 20-year career and lives in Hattiesburg. Irsay sent a tweet on Sunday saying “Brad, I’m in Hattiesburg … is it right or left at the Firechief?”
Favre’s longtime agent Bus Cook said he hadn’t spoken with the quarterback in a few days, but the “last time I saw him he was on his tractor mowing the back forty.”
Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had surgery on his neck in May and hasn’t played in the preseason. Through a spokesman, Colts’ general manager Chris Polian declined comment on Irsay’s tweet.
