On a community visit to Marshall, Minn. on Monday, Vikings' President Mark Wilf told reporters that the team is still interested in quarterback Brett Favre.

Wilf told reporters that the team is still evaluating "a variety of factors" about the former Packers' and Jets' quarterback who has had a tough time staying away from the game.

He said he was not aware of any meetings between Favre and Vikings' head coach Brad Childress and that they will assess Favre the same way they do with every other free agent.

Reporters also asked him if Favre told Childress he would come out of retirement to play for the Vikings. Wilf said, “What I can tell you is that type of decision is up to Brett Favre, and I’ll leave it to Brett Favre to give you that answer.”

This is change, just for the fact that someone from within the organization has commented on the issue.

After a report last week from Rich Schwartz of Yahoo! Sports, many thought Favre would stay retired. In the report, Schwartz said he found out from a source close to the organization that Favre had told Childress he would remain retired via telephone.

When will this story end? No one knows.

But after Wilf's comments to the media on Monday, we know it won't stop here.
