Breaking News: Brett Favre To Sign With Vikings
Total Pro Sports – Some say the only things you can guarantee in life are death and taxes. It is now safe to add the fact that Brett Favre will never retire to that list.
Reports from ESPN are stating that pending a physical, the former Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers and New York Jets quarterback is expected to sign a $10-$12 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings. Coach Brad Childress confirmed that Favre was visiting Minnesota to meet with the team and when asked whether they would sign the 39-year-old, he replied “In a perect world.” It looks like things are about to get perfect for Childress and the Vikings.
Favre likely delayed this process in an effort to skip through training camp, something that has not intrigued the veteran quarterback throughout the latter part of his career. Although his antics may have some questioning his loyalties to the team and the game, you can expect the Vikings’ players and fans to be pleased with the news that they will finally have worthy play-caller under center.
This move will also have great implications for fantasy football owners as Favre will make his way up the quarterback rankings list, and will also help push the likes of Bernard Berrian, Sidney Rice and rookie Percy Harvin up the wide receiver charts. The Vikings have been known for their strong defense and running game, and they may finally have the quarterback needed to manufacture something through the air.
And with all that money coming his way, it looks like Favre may not need to sell his Ford F-150 after all.
