Favre to FOX?

Our friends at the RanchReport.com recently met with former Cowboys coach Barry Switzer, who may have revealed Brett Favre's football plans for this fall.

It appears that former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre may be on a televsion set on game days this fall instead of the field. Former Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer recently indicated as much to RanchReport.com's Mike Fisher.

Switzer was on FOX's studio show last year, pairing him as a "Grumpy Old Man" with longtime friend/nemesis Jimmy Johnson. But Switzer told Fisher on Friday that while the network is still negotiating with him about a role, FOX may replace him on its totem pole with another legendary name.

"Well, they're talking to Favre," said Switzer at Oklahoma University Honorary Degree luncheon on the school's campus. "I still think they want me involved in some way. But with Brett. ... they might pair him in a segment with (Terry) Bradshaw, I don't know. ... It's a lot of fun for me, but there's only so much time (available) on that show. And, hey, he's Brett Favre!"

Since officially announcing his retirement, Favre has indirectly indicated that he may consider returning to play football. He has always downplayed any future role in television after his football career, but that may soon change for the future Hall of Famer.

Stay tuned!
