It was reported on ProFootballTalk.com this morning that Brett Favre will not be returning to the Vikings this season. Favre is expected to issue a press release later this afternoon. He has also started to communicate this to teammates. Reports are that Favre’s ankle has not responded after surgery and rehab this off-season.
I believe Favre said the same thing last season during training camp and a few days later he was on a plane to the Vikings complex. Could this all be true? Could Brett Favre finally be retiring? Or is this just the official start to “Favre Watch 2010”?
If this is true, then the Vikings just took a major nose dive in the preseason rankings in my opinion. The other quarterbacks on the Vikings roster are Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels.
