Favre From Finished

OK, he hasn’t come out and said he’s going to play this year. There have been no dramatic helicopter entrances, but there is another sign that Brett Favre is going to play for the Vikings this year. That sign is a visit from a trio of teammates. According to the Star Tribune Jared Allen, Steve Hutchinson, and Ryan Longwell headed down to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to convince Favre to play in his 20th season. If Favre says no, I could see Jared Allen hogtying him, strapping him to Steve Hutchinson’s back, and bringing him back to the Twin Cities. If you have an early fantasy draft, feel free to take a gamble on Favre around the 10th round. If he shocks the world and doesn’t come back, you won’t be out too much. If he does return, you get an exceptional value (click to see my 2010 QB rankings).
NFL Network’s Scott Hanson tweeted that “Brett Favre took off 2:20pm est. My source says he’s going back to Minnesota. Stay with NFLN for more.” Fox’s Jay Glazer backs up the story tweeting “Brett Favre has told trio of vikings who came to persuade him to return that he is “back in” and is on plane back to minny now”. Be prepared on your drive home to hear all-Favre-all-the-time on sports radios. Favre will also take over ESPN and the rest of the sports outlets for the night.
