According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, quarterback Brett Favre has met with orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews recently to talk about his bicep/shoulder injury and any options that would help him be ready for the 2009 season.

Now it's certain that Favre has some interest in coming back to play for the Minnesota Vikings.

Many have wondered what his intentions are after Yahoo! Sports writer Rich Schwartz reported that Favre had told Vikings head coach Brad Childress he would stay retired a week ago.

On May 8, ESPN's Jeremy Schaap reported that Favre had sent X-rays to the Vikings organization for evaluation.

Since then, the retired quarterback has thrown passes at the local high school in Hattiesburg, Miss. and has told friend and former Vikings safety Darren Sharper that he feels like he is 39 years old.

I am not sure that is good or bad for Vikings fans. Stay tuned, purple country.
