With the NFL Draft is now behind us, and rookie mini camps begin to start, all 32 teams reload from last season and start seeing who will be making the roster come the first September in Sunday.

During mini and spring training camp, you do have the few Quarterback controversy's that do take place.

One of those quarterback situations is currently place in Minnesota, where the Vikings are deciding between Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels.

Wait, hold your phones, Brett may be coming to down!

It has been reported of Favre, currently retired, has sent his X-Rays of his torn biceps to the Vikings for examination.

It Brett does in fact need major surgery, he will be sitting on his couch in Mississippi this fall.

But if he doesn't, it is a 90 percent chance he signs with the Vikings.

Are you kidding me Brett? You are becoming a bigger laughing stock then Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez.

There is nothing Brett has to prove, so why are you keep coming back?

Lets face the facts; his last shot at a Super Bowl was with the Green Bay Packers two years ago, and that will never change.

Favre will never reach one again, that is unless he wants to become a backup quarterback on a Super Bowl team.

He wasnt going to win one with the Jets, and the Vikings don't have that much better of a chance either.

The million-dollar question for Minnesota is simple: Why are you going after somebody you already have?

The Vikings already have two quarterbacks I would rather have currently than Favre.

From the couch's perspective, Sage Rosenfels should be the starting quarterback heading into the season.

He had a pretty solid campaign with the Texans before Schaub came back, and gives Minnesota the best chance to win.

Only way I see this as a positive is the Vikings trying to fill the seats, and in this economy, Brett Favre is not worth the front row ticket.

There must be something he is wanting to prove, and frankly I don't know what.

Whether he signs with the Vikings or not, my opinion on his legacy won't change.

But his reality of wanting to stay in the spotlight has done him more bad then good.
