The 39 year old quarter back is coming back with the Vikings. On Tuesday he came and said that he wants to play with them. Favre is crazy. He is getting paid $12 million this year and $13 million next year. This is all according to ESPN's analyst Chris Mortensen.
The bad part is, is that this contract doesn't allow bonuses.
The contract has $12 M. guaranteed this season, if Favre gets the opening day roster.
The Vikings made an official agreement Tuesday at 6:00 P.M ET. A news conference was set up with Favre at that time, he didin't make a conference. It is amazing that Favre is still coming back after all this time of whining like a kid.
Favre and his wife named Deanna came at the conference with cheering fans that were so excited. They were right outside the practicing facility. The quarterback was in a helmet and pads with a nice practicing Vikings jersey on. That was 90 minutes before the conference.
The head coach for the Vikings Brad Childress who was the one who greeted Favre at the airport, had sebt Favre an e-mail on Tuesday. It said, "In a perfect world." After Favre had replied to him saying yes to the contract.
"This is the weekend Brett decided he wanted to come back. And I'm not sure either side ever closed the door," Favre's agent, Bus Cook, told ESPN's Mortensen. Everyone went crazy when they heard it.
Its strange that ESPN's reporter Chris Carter reported that, coach Brad Childress said to the Vikings that Favre was going to play in the Friday pre-season game. Against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"I have mixed emotions, but I have always loved to watch him play," Favre's mother, Bonita, told the Sun Herald of Biloxi. "This time, however, I thought he would stay retired and stay home. I guess he could not do it."
"They [Minnesota] seem to have a good team in place, and he liked that. I guess I need to get a Vikings jersey now."
Whats upsetting is that John David Booty who was wearing NO.4 is now assigned to be NO.9.
"I think he's a great quarterback, a great guy, a great leader. Would I like to hit him? Hell, yeah, I'd like to hit him. All these damn practices out here and they didn't let us hit him." Packers linebacker Nick Garnett said.
Well lets just hope Favre doesn't comeback after this retirement, because he makes a big commotion about it.
