Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is again throwing passes to receivers at Oak Grove High School in his hometown of Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

As many Vikings fans can recall, Favre was taking part in these same workouts last offseason while mulling his choice between coming back to the NFL for a 19th season or staying in retirement.

Nevil Barr, the head football coach at Oak Grove High School, spoke to the Star Tribune and commented on the quality of No. 4's arm.

"His arm is great like always," Barr said. "As far as how his ankle is I haven't heard him say anything about it. We don't ask him a whole lot on that."

Favre recently underwent a procedure on his ankle in the past few weeks to remove bone spurs after injuring it in this past season's playoffs. The procedure was done by Dr. James Andrews of Birmingham, Alabama—the same doctor who performed surgery on Favre's right arm last season to release a tendon and allow him to sign with Minnesota prior to the 2009 season.

Favre has not publicly made a decision on if he will come back for another season with the Vikings. He is continuing to rehab the ankle in Mississippi.
