Brett Favre is almost certainly not leaving retirement to return to the NFL.

But a post on Favre's Instagram page Tuesday left social media buzzing with speculation the 49-year-old quarterback planned to return to the league in 2020.

"A true champion sticks to his or her calling," the message read. "I will be coming out of retirement and making my return to play in the NFL for the 2020 season. Stay tuned for more #news!"

Sound ridiculous? Yes, and the fact the post was quickly deleted suggests Favre's account was either hacked, or he was making a late April Fool's Day joke.

Still, this is Brett Favre we're talking about, the quarterback who retired after the 2007 season only to "unretire" and play three more seasons before walking away at age 41. And hey, if Tom Brady can play into his mid-40s, why couldn't Favre give it another shot?

Except, that would be a bad idea. If nothing else, social media had some fun poking fun at Favre's "plans" to return.

An 11-time Pro Bowl selection, Favre was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

Kareem Hunt questioned by police after bar incident, report says.
Hunt was reportedly "involved in a physical altercation with another man," though another witness said "people blew it out of proportion." Hunt was suspended for the first eight games of 2019 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after a video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman in the hallway of a Cleveland hotel last February. He was promptly released by the Chiefs in the wake of the incident but it wasn't long before he was scooped up by the Browns.
