When a professional athlete or coach returns for another season, often with another organization, after announcing with great fanfare and emotion his retirement from the game. The return is often preceded by much media attention and speculation fed by the individual dropping broad hints about missing the game and being healthy again while shopping his talents/previous accomplishments/record to the highest bidder with the intent of winning just one more championship. Can be a multi-year phenomenon depending on the drive and/or greed of the individual.
An eerie and uneasy feeling of Déjà Favre-vu fell over the country when the once-great NFL quarterback announced his return to pro football, this time in the Arena Football League.
