In an interview with Joe Buck which aired Monday, June 15, Favre explained that he would have interest in playing with the Minnesota Vikings during the 2009 season. Favre said the Vikings "make sense" for him as they are running the same offense he ran while with the Green Bay Packers for 16 years.
Additionally, Darrell Bevell, Farve's former quarterback coach at Green Bay for three seasons, is now the offensive coordinator for Minnesota. Favre said Monday "he could teach that offense." And that he just might do, as all roads point to Brett Favre donning a purple jersey this next season.
At one point during his appearance on the "Joe Buck Live" debut, Favre referred to playing on the future Vikings team as "we," stating the team "should be pretty good." This quells all speculation that Favre's second comeback from retirement is simply a rumor.
The cliff hanger Brett left very clear was that if his arm does not return to normal from his bicep tendon surgery, his return would be questionable. We'll know in four to five weeks that outcome.
Until then, Vikings, Packers and (maybe a few) New York fans, stay tuned.
