There’s just something about August 17th that Brett Favre must like. (Either that, or Jared Allen did a great job tying Favre up.)
Exactly one year from the day Brad Childress first chauffeured Favre to the Minnesota Vikings facility, there are multiple indications that Favre has finally decided to return to the team for the 2010 season.
Scott Hanson of NFL Network reports that Favre is on a jet heading north to Minnesota. We haven’t confirmed that news, but we can repeat an email sent out from Brett Favre’s official website. The email says:
“Stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre’s
possible return. Visit the Vikings.com and Officialbrettfavre.com for more
Was there ever any doubt?
UPDATE: The Minneapolis Star-Tribune confirms Favre is on a flight to Minnesota. Although this gives him extra time to change his mind.
UPDATE II: Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Favre told the trio of Vikings who came to persuade him to return that he is “back in” and he’s on a plane to Minnesota now. Glazer notes Favre hasn’t told the team anything yet and could always change his mind.
