If quarterback Brett Favre truly intended to make an inconspicuous return to the NFL, the best time to do it would have come during the 4:00 ET hour on Monday, when the football-watching world was transfixed by the Mike Vick reinstatement.
But Favre never does anything inconspicuously, even though he tries to create the impression that he does.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that there were no developments between Favre and the Vikings on Monday, which meshes with reports from the likes of ESPN’s Rachel Nichols and NFLN’s Scott Hanson.
Speaking of Hanson, he reports that a member of the Vikings organization who was certain last week that Favre would join the team. Now, Hanson’s source isn’t so sure.
So now that the Vick situation has sort of been resolved, we can all focus on the manner in which the Favre fiasco finally ends.
No matter what he says, that’s precisely the way he likes it.
