In February, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf was asked whether he had an interest in Brett Favre playing quarterback for the Vikings in 2009.
Said Wilf at the time: “No way.”
On Wednesday, Wilf was asked whether he has an interest in Favre playing quarterback for the Vikings in 2010.
Said Wilf, essentially: “Way.”
“I would love him to; why not?” Wilf said, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “That’s what we signed him up for.”
Favre signed a two-year deal in August. His base salary for 2009 is $12 million, and his base salary for 2010 will be $13 million.
At the time, however, no one believed that the second year of the deal was real.
Then again, no one realized that the folks at Riddell had made for Favre a magic helmet that makes its wearer perform 15 years younger than he looks when he takes it off.
