Council Bluffs, IA- Could football star, Brett Favre, be coming to play in Council Bluffs?
"I contacted his agent a couple of days ago and we talked about some things and I sent a proposal to him," says Brad Lindgren, the owner of the Council Bluffs Express.
Lindgren says the Council Bluffs Express, the town's indoor football team, offered Brett Favre the quarter back position and a chance to coach.
"As far as I can see, Brett probably wants to get his foot in the coaching world and this would be a perfect place to start," says Lindgren.
Formerly the Iowa Blackhawks, the team has a new name and a new look. Lindgren says a star player would bring in the fans.
Or would it?
"The name's familiar, but don't tell me what position he played. Quarterback maybe?" says Ed Bremmer, a Council Bluffs resident.
"I'm a Vikings fan and I've already lived through Brett Favre's attempt at being a quarterback for that so I don't really have great hopes for him," says Mary Slater, an Omaha resident.
What are the chances the future hall of famer quarterback would come to Council Bluffs?
"I can't answer that question," says Steve Nitzel with the American Professional Football League. "That might be something for Brett's agent or for Brett to comment on."
The team's homeopener is April 14 at the Mid America Center.
