ST. LOUIS, MO (NBC)-- The St. Louis Rams are really searching for a quarterback. The team gave someone a call who hasn't played in three years. That would, of course, be Brett Favre.

After the Rams lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford to a season-ending knee injury Sunday, St. Louis called Favre Sunday night through his agent.

Favre apparently declined to 'un-retire' again. He apparently likes spending time with his family which includes a three-year-old grandson.

The Rams ended up signing veteran quarterback Brady Quinn, who had been released by the New York Jets earlier this week, and brought back Austin Davis, who spent the 2012 season and the 2013 preseason with the team.

Both quarterbacks will back up Kellen Clemens, who will get his first start this season when the Rams host the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night.
