A high-placed NFL source said Tuesday morning that the agent for retired quarterback Brett Favre(notes) spent much of Monday calling to check on the details of what would be a one-year, $12 million deal for Favre to join the Minnesota Vikings.

Favre’s agent, Bus Cook did not immediately return phone messages left by Yahoo! Sports. A call to the Vikings also was not immediately returned. However, the league source said Cook indicated that a deal could be reached within the next few days.

Then again, all of that depends on Favre, who has wavered on whether to stay retired since making his initial announcement to leave the Green Bay Packers in March 2008. Favre had been expected to join the Vikings at the start of training camp, but then told Minnesota coach Brad Childress that he wasn’t interested in playing at that time.

The talks by Cook come on the heals of strong speculation by FOX Sports NFL reporter Jay Glazer on Monday that Favre would join the Vikings later this year.

Favre was spotted leaving Hattisburg, MS airport this morning at 9am to sign the contract with the Vikes.

$12million? Jesus. They better win the damn SB.

WCCO-TV in Minneapolis cites a high-level source with the Vikings as saying Brett Favre will sign on Tuesday.

The Hattiesburg Laurel Regional Airport reports that Brett and Deanna Favre boarded a plane with a Vikings logo and were headed to Minneapolis. Multiple reports confirm that Favre is en route and will sign with the Vikings later today. The latest reports back FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer's prediction that Favre would join the team shortly. Favre accomplished his goal of avoiding training camp and will be handed the starting job with three weeks to prepare.

Why cant he just go away? All of that drama and mess just so he could be a lazy ass and stay out of camp.

He is ruining his rep, but im sure the NFL propaganda machine will forget all about it and he will be known as one of the greatest QB's of all time, despite these glaring character flaws. The NFL is great at making/retaining its superstars.

Yes. But, why is Favre the QB to solve problems? He SUCKED worse than Thigpen down the stretch for the Jets. He cost them games. He hasn't been in camp with the Vikings at all. He said his heart wasn't into it. The head coach came out and said he was done with Favre.

IMO, Childress loses the team even more than he already has, and a group of players will be pissed off at all the special rules/attention to Favre when he isn't very good anymore.

IMO, Sage could "dilfer" the Vikings into the NFC Championship.

Favre to play for Vikings Friday against Chiefs, mom says
By AL JONES
McClatchy Newspapers

Brett Favre will be wearing a Vikings uniform on Friday and will see action against Kansas City, according to his mother, Bonita.

"He is going," Bonita Favre, his mom said. "I have mixed emotions, but I have always loved to watch him play. This time, however, I thought he would stay retired and stay home. I guess he could not do it.

"He told me he would always wonder 'what if?' I told him I supported him."

Bonita Favre said he son will work out Wednesday and plans to take a few reps in a preseason home game on Friday against Kansas City. The Vikings are 1-0 after a 13-3 win over Indianapolis last Friday.

"I wanted to go to the game on Friday," she said. "But I said I could not make because I have two baby showers at my house on Saturday. I think playing on Friday was part of the deal."

Let's take a look at how it will go, shall we?

Week 1, Vikings @ Browns: Favre throws for 300 yards and 3 TDs. Vikes win in a landslide. A campaign to elect Favre Governor of Minnesota is immediately begun. Meanwhile, everyone ignores that it was only Cleveland.

Week 2, Vikings @ Lions: Favre goes for 275, 2 TDs, and one meaningless INT. Vikes roll. Hysteria grips Minnesota. Meanwhile, everyone ignores that it was only Detroit.

Week 3: Niners @ Vikes. 320 yards, 3 TDs. Write-ins begin to replace Obama with Favre. One lone fan points out it was against the Niners, and is stoned to death.

Week4: GB @ Min (MNF) : Favre throws for 375 yards and 4 TDs. Vikes edge Green Bay to go 4-0. Favre is carried off the field, and in the postgame presser wipes a tear from his eye and talks about how great his Vikings teammates are. All across Wisconsin, people set fire to so many piles of Cheeseheads and Favre jerseys that it can be seen from the International Space Station.

Week 5: Vikings @ Rams: a subpar game for Favre, in that he only throws for 300 yards and 3 more TDs, with one pick. Vikes roll. A lone fan points out that it was only against St. Louis, but is wise enough to do so via the Internet and thus avoids stoning, but some innovative Vikings fans hack his computer and fill it with kiddie porn, getting him arrested.

Week 6: Ravens @ Vikings. Minnesota shockingly suffers their first loss of the season when they actually play a good defense. Favre goes for 200 yards and only 1 TD, with 3 INTs, the last one being a game-killer. Apologists claim he's injured because he was seen flexing his arm after the game, but they don't realize it was only so he could kiss his own bicep.

Week 7: Vikings @ Steelers. Favre throws two quick picks, and then the Pitt defense knocks him out of the game. Vikes lose 2nd game in a row, fall to 5-2. Phone lines on Minnesota sports talk shows start to light up.

Week 8: Vikings @ Packers. A game Favre tries to go, but is ineffective and throws a pick that gets returned for a TD. Pack ends up winning by 6, but they blame it on the Vikings' backup QB, not on Favre. Packer fans stone the Vikings team bus with frozen cheese balls as the Pack and Vikes ties for the division lead at 5-3.

Week 10: Lions @ Vikings. After the bye week, Favre comes back a bit rusty, but 250 yards, 2 TDs, and 2 picks is still enough to beat Detroit. His posters go back up across Minneapolis.

Week 11: Seahawks @ Vikings. Another average game (200 yards, 1 TD, 1 pick) but the Vikes run it down Seattle's throat. Favre is named game MVP even though the Vikes rush for 300 yards.

Week 12: Bears @ Vikings. Favre sucks. 225 yards, 1 TD, 3 picks. Luckily, Cutler sucks more. Vikings move to 8-3, and women in Minneapolis start naming their babies "Brett".

Week 13: Vikings @ Cardinals. The road and the heat combine to throw Favre off his game, as he goes for 250 yards and 1 TD with 2 more picks. Minnesota fans picket NFL headquarters and demand Favre be allowed to play only in Domes. Vikes fall to 8-4, but fans aren't too worried.

Week 14: Bengals @ Vikings. Cincinnati sucks bad. But Favre still manages to throw two picks, the last one costing them the game. Vikings fans start grumbling.

Week 15: Vikings @ Panthers. Road game, Carolina fighting for a wildcard spot, Favre chokes on his jock and goes for 225 yards with 1 TD and 3 more picks. Vikes fall to 8-6, and only a miracle gets them a wildcard. Favre goes into hiding in his concrete bunker built out of an old missile silo.

Week 16: Bears @ Vikings. Bears' D chases Favre all over the place, and since he's as slow and old as Larry King they catch him a whole bunch of times. No picks from Favre, but three fumbles. Bears win, Vikes fall to 8-7.

Week 17: Giants lock up the #1 playoff seed as they knock the Vikes to 8-8. Favre throws a mind-blowing 5 picks, the last two returned for touchdowns. Packer fans are delighted. Prince calls for Minnesota to ban the name "Brett" from use. Favre runs like hell to the state line, being chased by angry villagers bearing burning Favre jerseys. John Madden still finds a way to blame everything on everyone but Brett, and says Favre still has something left in the tank. Favre swears he's retired for good this time, his eyes glistening at the press conference.

Spring 2010: rumors begin when Denver cleans house, and new coach Herm Edwards denies there's an interest in Favre.

However for me he'e being relegated to back up duty since my starting qbs for the two teams are Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.

If Favre just sticks to making short passes and checking down like he did early last season, he could be ok. But he isn't capable of doing mu8ch more than that, and he can't play in the cold or physically handle a 16 game season anymore. He'll end up sucking down the stretch as he always does. Favre was decent early on for the Jets, but was the worst qb in the NFL the 2nd half of the season and single-handily cost them a playoff spot.

Favre doesn't really have much upside. The Vikings are never going to win a Superbowl with him, they might not be capable of winning a playoff game. They're paying 12 million dollars, taking on a huge distraction by signing a 40 year old qb that is out of shape and coming off an injury...for what?

Do you think Seattle players got upset at Walter Jones for sitting out training camp every year he was on the franchise tag?

Even Peter King is fed up with Favre:

"I'm sure I'll regret my decision down the road.''
--Brett Favre, to me, on July 28.

Down the road? That's a pretty short road. More like a driveway.

---

"I'm leaving an incredible opportunity on the table, and that opportunity is not coming back.''
--Favre, July 28.

Yes it is.

---

You would think I think this Brett Favre-to-Minnesota story is great, but I don't. I think it's wrong. I think it's a circus. And I think Minnesota coach Brad Childress is making a mistake.

If I were Childress, I'd have waited until Sage Rosenfels struggled -- if he struggled -- and then made the call to Favre. By doing it now, Childress loses Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson; how can they ever trust anything he says now? I'm sure both are furious, and Rosenfels, particularly, is crushed. And the way Favre talked to me three weeks ago, there's a chance he won't last the season and Childress will have to turn to one of his angry quarterbacks.

What Favre told me late last month he wasn't coming back because he felt totally beat after some hard summer workouts, how could he think he'd have enough stamina to make it through a season? He simply didn't think he'd be able to handle the physical rigors of the season. "I just didn't think my body would hold up the way it had in the past,'' he said.

The perfect scenario would have been for the Vikings to see if Rosenfels or Jackson played well enough through a piece-of-cake early schedule (at Cleveland, at Detroit, San Francisco), and if the position was an Achilles heel, then reach out to Favre to see if he was interested. By doing it now, Childress tells his team he doesn't trust Rosenfels or Jackson. That could come back to haunt him if Favre's body breaks down.

Childress has looked like a desperate man throughout this melodrama. He made it known internally that Favre had to do at least some work in the offseason program or the veteran mini-camp to be considered. Favre never showed. Then he had to come by the start of camp. Favre didn't come, opting for his third false retirement in 17 months. Now the Vikings let him come back after the team has gone through training camp. Favre's the wishy-washiest player in memory -- and the Vikings are his enablers. It's ridiculous.

And when, as the coach, you look a player in the eye and outright lie to him, you sort of lose credibility and don't exactly motivate them. Those QBs are probably already asking their agents about a trade.

The non-QB guys might grumble a bit, but they won't mind this move as much. Of course, if Favre comes in and shows he's got nothing left in the tank due to age and/or injury, then the team will get pissed and get pissed quickly.

He deserves respect for that one super bowl ring.

WTF is up with his arm?

Considering he has 3 MVP's I think that's a bit ridiculous.

For most of his time in Green Bay the NFC Central/North totally sucked dick except for Green Bay. He also had the advantage of playing home games late in the season and in the playoffs in a brutally cold environment most other teams weren't used to. Both factors padded his personal stats and team wins. If he was more accurate instead of just a slinger perhaps Green Bay could have ridden these advantages to more post-season success during his long tenure.

It's his left arm so um who cares?

Also he won a superbowl with....Edgar Bennett as his RB and did you see the WR's he played with? After Sterling Sharpe called it a career it was just scrub city and he made those guys look good.

I suppose you think Jim Kelly was one of the greatest QBs ever, too, right? Playing in frozen solid fucking Buffalo didn't have anything to do with him playing in four Super Bowls, did it? :shake:

Jim Kelly was a very good QB on a great team, the Bills had talent out the ass.

Well, Kelly was better than Favre.

That's a good debate, Kelly played on more talent teams and wasn't as naturally gifted.

Offensively they weren't really great other than Favre, they had defensive talent.

No one here thinks Edgar Bennett was a stud RB I'm sure and their WR's were guys like Robert Brooks, good player but not a star by any stretch.

Favre is Rex Grossman with a horseshoe up his ass. I don't care how many records he's broken, I'll never rank him among the best (Montana, Marino, Manning, etc.).

...this is the worst comparison I have heard yet.

The guy hasn't missed a start in over 16 years. The guy is an ironman.

That part's impressive.

Chucking the ball randomly down the field and hoping your guy catches it? Not so much.

While you have to admit the streak is impressive, he played hurt many times where he actually cost the team rather than helping them. The year he broke his thumb on his throwing hand he kept playing and was absolutely horrid. I know because he was my FF QB that year and I ended up benching him.

Last year in NY he cost the Jets a bunch of games after he hurt his arm.

You have to wonder if sometimes taking some time off to heal and coming back healthier wouldn't have been better.

No need to doubt his toughness but sometimes I think it was selfish motives at the expense of the team.

Don't forget the fact that both teams didn't have sh*t for back-ups, particularly the Jets.

great winner, never quits, stays in the game because he doesn't want to quit, yeah sure, money, too. duh...
but, it's funny, people bitch about hearing about Favre and Vick, yet everytime they come on ESPN, ESPN's #'s spike through the roof, so...

just saying.

..from a Packer fan's POV and something I never thought of....

Living up here the past couple of years I have become friends with some hardcore cheeseheads.

Yes, his 'gunslinger' mentality often found him trouble. But a couple of my Packer buddies pointed out that for 16 years they knew who was going to be under center. They never had to worry about the QB position for 16 years.
There aren't many teams who can say that...I believe Peyton and Brees are the closest on consecutive games but I may be wrong.

I just thought that was pretty cool. How many QB's have the Chiefs had in the last 16 years? It's been a while (Lenny I think) since we have had the luxury of having a QB being productive for over a decade. As for our Ironman, Trent green made it about 5 years.

Just thought it was an interesting perspective from the shoes of a cheesehead.

The funny thing is after Favre it's Peyton...then Eli...

But the 2 Manning's combined doesn't have as many as Favre does.

You're not a QB, dude, so you really should shut the fuck up.

It is kind of a circus. The only thing I wonder about is whether Favre's heart is truly in it. Just a couple weeks ago he didn't think his body could hold up. I think he has a right to do whatever he wants, but he's changed his mind too many times. Big difference between that and the guys like Manning, Brady, etc who have 100% focus and intensity for the work they need to do. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up making a lot of mistakes.
