Could the Vikings be the next stop on Favre's retirement tour? With the New York Jets officially releasing Brett Favre this past week it only makes sense that "Brett Watch 2009" would start heating up. I was suprised that I didn't hear a lot about Favre and a possible return on the AM stations this week. If you can remember it was only last year on Opening Day that Brett wanted to return to Green Bay, and Ted shipped him to New York. Maybe he wanted more time off?
There is no question that the Minnesota Vikings are the best fit for Brett Favre. The Vikings have Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels as the potential week one starters. I'd almost rather start Rex Grossman than those two. Brad Childress should be worried if he expects the Vikings to repeat in 2009 with no answer behind center. Ultimately, Favre could be the answer in the Twin Cities if his injury is healed.
Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse thinks the deal is already done.
