Childress Not "Entertaining" the Thought of Favre Signing With Vikings

It would seem that business was as usual in Minnesota after the Vikings finished practice Thursday. All except that when Brett Favre came up in media talks, Childress didn't use the old "no comment" line.

The Associated Press reported today that Childress said that "Brett Favre was worth the conversation," but the Vikings coach insists that until the quarterback calls them, he is still retired—as far as he knows.

Why does that line sound like something Favre himself said?

AP reports that, "Childress addressed the subject Thursday after the team practiced at Winter Park. He says the last time he spoke with Favre was on the phone, several weeks ago."

He couldn't rule out the thought of later signing the 39-year old quarterback, but at the moment isn't currently "entertaining the idea," as focusing on the players that are actually already on his roster.

Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels are to do battle for the starting quarterback job, provided Favre stays retired.

And so the madness continues...
