ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher declined to address reports he tried to lure Brett Favre out of retirement to replace Sam Bradford, who is out for the season with a knee injury.

Fisher changed the subject after practice Thursday, then said “Nice try” when asked whether the 44-year-old Favre could be ready to play.

Defensive end Robert Quinn didn’t think there was anything to the reports.

Brett Favre is staying retired,” Quinn said. “Brett hasn’t played since 2010 and he’s comfortable down there in Mississippi on a boat or something. Have fun with it, Brett.”

Kellen Clemens, the backup the past two seasons, makes his 13th career start Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams also signed Brady Quinn and Austin Davis.

Fisher said he wouldn’t discuss players contacted after Bradford tore his left ACL on Sunday at Carolina, although he confirmed Tyler Thigpen also worked out.

“I don’t feel any need to disclose information after the process,” Fisher said. “That’s how we are. I’ll be happy to talk about Thigpen, and the two that we signed.”
