From ESPN.com’s Ed Werder:
Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress and quarterback Brett Favre plan to meet at an undisclosed location later this week to discuss the possibility of the former Packers and Jets quarterback renouncing his retirement from the NFL to play the 2009 season with the Vikings, according to a source with direct knowledge of discussions between the two parties.
We all knew this was coming, and I touched on it in the last post. However, some of the stipulations to Vikings have on Favre are interesting. Number one, they want Favre in camp and in the offseason programs, something that he hadn’t even been doing during his last years in Green Bay. Number two, an “undisclosed location.” Really Chilly? That just sends this whole situation into a new realm of the absurd.
This year, the idea of Favre in Minnesota is actually real. But instead of getting a guy with some childish enthusiasm that New York got last year, the Vikings will be left with a bitter old man with a bum shoulder on his last legs.
