Favre: Austin Davis Could Be Next Brady, Warner

Brett Favre is a big believer in Austin Davis, who also went to Southern Miss.

"Austin can definitely play at this level," Favre said.

Davis had a completion percentage of 86 percent against the Seattle Seahawks.

"Not to sound off my rocker, but [Davis] -- in my mind -- can be the next Tom Brady or Kurt Warner. [Brian] Hoyer as well.

"Austin, like those mentioned, just needed a legit opportunity."

Report: NFL Plans To Send 1-2 Teams To L.A. Within Two Years

The current plan is that the NFL will send one or two teams back to Los Angeles within the next 12 to 24 months, according to a league source.

The timeline would include a team announcing its intention to move in the 2015 or 2016 offseason, with arrangements to play at the Rose Bowl or the L.A. Coliseum pending the construction of a new stadium.  Possible sites for a venue in L.A. include the AEG project at L.A. Live in downtown, the land purchased recently by Rams owner Stan Kroenke at Hollywood Park, Chavez Ravine, and a couple of locations that have not yet been publicly disclosed. 

Ed Roski’s shovel-ready site at City of Industry is not regarded as a viable destination.

The St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are considered the three teams that could relocate. All three also previously played in Los Angeles.
