Minnesota Vikings Announce Signing of Brett Favre


Via Vikings.com:

The Minnesota Vikings have signed three-time NFL MVP Brett Favre, the team announced today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We believe adding a player such as Brett Favre to our mix will be a strong positive for this football team,” said Head Coach Brad Childress. “As we have conveyed before, his unique knowledge of our system, the NFC North and his innate skills make this a rare opportunity. We felt there was a brief window to reconsider the possibility and we owed it to the organization to evaluate our options. After thorough discussion, the same variables that made this a unique and positive situation previously, still exist. Now, our attention turns to getting to work as a team, our next practice and preparing for the season.”

The terms are, if you believe the insiders, one year for between $10 and $12 million.  And no one is allowed to look Brett in the eye.

    Everyone keeps assuming that Sage and TJack didn’t know anything about this.  I find that extremely hard to believe!  I’d be willing to bet they were the first to know EVERYTHING that was going on with Favre!
