Brett Favre teases he would play for the Cowboys under one condition

One of the greatest quarterbacks to play in the NFL, Brett Favre, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this weekend in Canton, Ohio. He received the famous gold jacket that is given to all Hall of Famers earlier this week.

He's a day away from being enshrined into NFL history forever when his bust is revealed, but the former Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings star has said that the whole process has given him the itch to play once more.

Of course, Favre has been known to come out of retirement to play in the league once more. He's done it twice before, but would he do it for a third time to play for a quarterback-needy team like the Dallas Cowboys?

Speaking on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, the quarterback was asked that question by Nate Burleson, to which he said: "You know what? Being around, walking in his Hall and stuff, it kind of gives you an itch.

"The only problem is I can't get hit. Can they promise I won't get hit?"

Burleson reminded Favre that the Cowboys have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, to which he replied laughing: "Well, I mean, that's good. But I need a little more ... security."

At the age of 46 and being out of the league for six years now, the chances of Favre putting on the famous star helmet to play in Dallas are very close to zero.

The Cowboys are rumored to be trying to acquire Josh McCown from the Cleveland Browns, but The Gunslinger might be their last resort for America's team if they can't get their man before the season beings, but in reality, they shouldn't have any problems finding a decent backup for starter Tony Romo.
