Dylan Favre's not done yet.

The former St. Stanislaus gun-slinging quarterback signed a contract with the Cedar Rapids Titans of the Indoor Football League, the team announced Monday.

Brett Favre's nephew had a well-traveled collegiate career, playing at Mississippi State and Pearl River Community College before concluding his amateur career at UT-Martin.

He really turned heads this past summer when he led Team USA to a gold medal in the International Federation of American Football World Championship in Canton, Ohio.

In four games with the Americans, he threw for almost 600 yards and four touchdowns while splitting work with Mount Union's Kevin Burke.

In two seasons at UTM, Favre threw for 1,746 with 15 touchdowns. He also rushed for two scores.

The Titans open their 17-game season Feb. 12 against the Iowa Barnstormers.

The IFL was created in 2008 after a merge between the Intense Football League and United Indoor Football. The 10-team league currently has franchises in Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Texas, Colorado, Nebraska, Montana and Washington.
