Vikings Set Deadline For Favre

The archrival Minnesota Vikings have set a deadline for retired quarterback Brett Favre to make a decision on his return for the 2009 NFL season.

Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has imposed a deadline of this week for Brett Favre to decide whether he will be the team’s quarterback for the upcoming season, according to two sources.

Favre, however, is apparently reluctant to commit to playing a 19th NFL season without first being more confident the arthroscopic surgery performed recently on his throwing shoulder has succeeded in eliminating all of the problems related to a torn biceps tendon.

The big question is whether or not the Vikings will stick to the deadline.  Favre recently had arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder and is reportedly rehabbing to get back into football shape.  The surgery was pretty recent so it remains to be seen whether or not he will know where he is when the deadline comes and passes.

I don’t the Vikings will stick to the deadline.  It will come and go with Favre making no comment and then the Vikings saying they are not interested in him, but when push comes to shove in early t0 mid-July and Favre keeps talking comeback, the Vikes will let him back in the competition with Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson.  And John David Booty‘s there too.  I don’t think the Vikings will be able to resist him.
