The silence of retired quarterback Brett Favre throughout the offseason will end on Monday night when he will do a live interview on "Joe Buck Live" at 8 p.m. CT on HBO.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that the interview will take placeone that Vikings fans will be sure to catch.

In recent weeks, Vikings head coach Brad Childress has come out to say that the team is interested in taking a look at the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback, who has reportedly had surgery to release a tendon in his right arm to relieve the pain and help him come back for a 19th NFL season.

However, Favre has not said anything to the media since the rumors started. His only communication has come from his agent, Bus Cook, who has basically given nothing to fans with his statements.

Many have thought the only barrier between Favre and a comeback with the Minnesota Vikings was the health of his shoulder. The surgery was reportedly done approximately two weeks ago, and from reports, rehab for a surgery like this takes around 6-8 weeks to complete.

The most recent news came on Saturday when it was reported that a trainer and coach from the Vikings organization would head down to Hattiesburg, Miss., Favre's hometown, to check on the quarterback's progress with healing his shoulder.

So, with all of the news and rumors floating around, Favre will finally speak to the NFL world and tell them what is on his mind.

This should be the best indication we get on his future, so tune in.
