Childress Says They Will at Least Talk About Favre

NFL/
Let the chatter begin.

Yes, the Minnesota Vikings have admitted that they are going to at least have a talk about recently retired quarterback Brett Favre. Brad Childress today stated that the team is going to at least throw around the theory that the team could land Favre, who was released by the Jets this past week and announced that he’s done as a QB.

“We haven’t [talked about Favre],” Childress said. ”It doesn’t mean we won’t. We talk about everything from what’s going on in the United States on the front page today. … We talk about everything. So, yeah, I’m sure we’ll talk about that.”

Right now the team has a couple of QB’s that are slated to compete for the starting job – Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson. There was a lot of talk last season that the Vikings were the team that Favre wanted to go to, and would end up with. Instead, he landed with the Jets and after a fast start faded along with the rest of the club.

So now the question will be – would Favre actually entertain the thought of coming back – again? If he did, he’d have the shot to go up against the Packers twice in 2009. But – would that be enough to actually get him to once again, go back on his retirement and come to the Twin Cities to play for Minnesota? I’m guessing he’s at least going to give it some serious thought. As will the Vikings.
