BREAKING NEWS: Brett Favre Is En Route To Minnesota!

It looks like the three-man contingent the Vikings sent down to recruit Brett Favre to return to Minnesota for one more season worked and it appears they will be bringing back some precious cargo to the Twin Cities…

Yep, by all accounts, and according to a report from the NFL Network, it appears Favre is coming back to sling the old football around for another year.

Via Access Vikings:

According to NFL Network, the quarterback is on a plane headed to the Twin Cities. This comes after three Vikings players, Jared Allen, Steve Hutchinson and Ryan Longwell, went to visit Favre in Mississippi and convince him to return.

Apparently it worked.

And then there’s this which was sent to the Star Tribune as an e-mail alert from Brett Favre’s official site (which is currently down):

“Stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre’s possible return. Visit the Vikings.com and Officialbrettfavre.com for more information.”

Yeah, right. Possible return. I wasn’t going to say that I told you so, but yeah, I told you so.
