Among free agent signings, trades and other roster moves last month, you might have forgotten about the quarterback situation in Minnesota. Brett Favre, who led the Vikings to the NFC Championship game last season, hasn’t told team officials whether or not he plans to play next season.
And he may keep the team waiting. Sound familiar?
Vikings coach Brad Childress sounded like he has plenty of patience left as he discussed the 40-year old quarterback during a radio interview with KSTP:
- “I still don’t, one way or the other,” Childress said. “I don’t know if he’s even thought about it or contemplated it. I [talked] with him briefly last week and I’m sure we’ll narrow it down as we get a little bit further.”
