Brett Favre may be a waffler par excellence, but even he knows that time is running out for him to make a decision on his potential future career with the Vikings.
Favre conveyed this sense of urgency through his agent Bus Cook, who spoke to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols on the phone Monday morning. Nichols tweeted about the no-doubt pleasant exchange:
Just spoke with agent Bus Cook, who tlked to Favre this morning. Brett still thinking things over, but knows decision has to come quite soon
Were I Brad Childress, I would call Brett today or tomorrow and just lay it on the line for him. And “lay it on the line” doesn’t necessarily mean demanding that he show up for camp. It does mean pressing him to give an answer so the Vikes can get him signed, get the news out there and be done with the thing for awhile. And if he does want to skip camp? Well, just let the big baby skip camp. No use having him around there sulking.
