Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that Vikings trainer Eric Surgarman visited retired quarterback Brett Favre in Hattiesburg, Miss. on Wednesday, the second visit this offseason.

Sugarman paid a visit to Favre back in June after he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder to show him some stretches that would help his arm heal successfully.

According to an unnamed Vikings source, the surgery performed around seven weeks ago was considered a "complete success."

This is the just the latest information that points to a second annual Brett Favre unretirement. Many believe that the biggest surprise would be if he decides to not return to the NFL and simply stays retired.

There are only a few events that could happen to stop Favre from signing with the purple. One would be both sides disagreeing on a contract. However, this seems to be unlikely to me due to how much Favre has done to get to this point. He underwent surgery and has been rehabbing to make sure his arm is 100 percent.

The report that there is already a contract agreement in place seems to be likely, pending the health of the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

The second and unlikely event would be Favre changing his mind and deciding to stay retired for whatever reason.

Like the contract, it seems that this also won't be the case because of the work and effort he has done to come this far.

Get ready Vikings country, you're about to get one of the best in the biz.
