Brett Favre is back with the Vikings, but the team is planning to wait until tomorrow to make it official.
The Vikings announced today that head coach Brad Childress will address the media on Wednesday following the team’s 11:40 a.m. practice. The team’s press release added, “Media availability with QB Brett Favre is to be determined.”
Sirius NFL Radio’s Pat Kirwan reported that the press conference will wait one more day in part because Favre’s first order of business is to take a physical.
Another potential is whether Favre still needs to work out the terms of a new contract. Favre is currently under contract for a base salary of $13 million in 2010, but reports surfaced this month that the Vikings were ready to bump up his salary to $16 million plus incentives. Favre may ask the Vikings to show him the money before making his arrival official.
