Report: Brett Favre turns down St Louis Rams opportunity

Three-time NFL MVP Brett Favre reportedly turns down the opportunity to come out of retirement to join the St Louis Rams.

Brett Favre has reportedly declined an offer to play for the St Louis Rams following Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury.

ESPN says that the NFC West side contacted the 44-year-old quarterback, who retired at the end of the 2010 season.

The Rams brought in free agents Brady Quinn and Austin Davis following Bradford's injury, while backup Kellen Clemens will start against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday.

Favre, who spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers, was named league MVP three times, has 11 Pro Bowl appearances and one Super Bowl win.
