NFL Network’s Scott Hanson confirms that Brett Favre and Vikings coach Brad Childress had at least one phone conversation. But the talks were informal and exploratory. There was no absolute decision made either way — to play for the Vikings or stay retired.
At this point Favre is retired, but as his agent, Bus Cook, told Hanson on Thursday — and as another source confirmed to Hanson on Friday — Favre wants to reserve the right to change his mind.
Hanson spent the day at the entrance to Favre’s estate, but has been told that Favre will not comment publicly on Friday or through the weekend.
