Vikings Ready to Score Favre if He’s Released?

Favre

Game on.

Earlier today I wrote a piece about Minnesota putting their stock in QB Tarvaris Jackson and trusting him with the offense this season.  In some ways, its a very risky move.  Now while the Vikings have been saying all along that Jackson is there man, it was before someone else got into the mix.  Brett Favre.

The word is Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, sent a letter to the Pack asking for his release.  Some sources, including Sports Radio 1250 Milwaukee are reporting that the Vikings have already sent out feelers about signing Favre, as long as he gets released and they lose nothing in the process.

Favre to the Vikings would be the story of the year in the NFL.  A Hall of Fame to be QB leaves Green Bay to play for the rival Vikings?! And how do you think Jackson feels right now?  He’s probably sick to his stomach to say the least.  And just in case you forgot, guess who opens up Monday Night Football this year – the Vikings and the Packers in Green Bay.

That was also the night they were supposed to retire Farve’s number.  Now it could very well be the night they try to stop him from spoiling their season opener, and from trying to dethrone the Pack as the division champs.  This saga is going to steal all the NFL headlines, as well it should – it makes for some of the best drama this offseason to date.
