According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, it is indeed true that retired quarterback Brett Favre, or at least a someone from his camp, is looking for a place to live in the Twin Cities area.

There had been rumors floating around local and national media that Favre had already bought or leased a home in the Edina, Minn. area and those weren't too far off.

This is just the latest confirmation that points to a Favre return to the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings.

Around a week ago, WCCO's Mark Rosen confirmed that Favre had a deal in place with the Vikings and that he would be at the team's training camp that starts at the end of July.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com had guessed at a Favre signing announcement on July 3, today, but that was with the assumption that Vikings single-game tickets would go on sale July 9.

Single-game tickets actually go on sale July 20, so if we do get the return of a quarterback legend, look for an announcement to come the week before that date.
