As reported by several media outlets, Brett Favre told his teammates he is returning to the team for one more season.
In other news, water is wet.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, three Vikings players, Steve Hutchinson, Jared Allen, and Ryan Longwell flew to Mississippi to talk Favre into returning.
Favre reportedly told these guys at that meeting he was already back, and an update on Favre's Web site tells everyone to "stay tuned" for breaking news.
The unending drama of Brett Favre actually has been fairly predictable this year since it seems to be following the 2009 script.
Favre told everyone he was retired during the opening weeks of training camp, which conveniently allows him to skip the two-a-days. Favre then makes hi appearance a few days after the first preseason game.
This allows him to save wear-and-tear on his approximately 150-year old body and keep his surgically repaired ankle fresh for the upcoming season.
Favre hasn't been as coy this offseason as he was last season, despite media hype to the contrary. Favre has been fairly quiet with only a few peeps as the summer progressed.
The text a few weeks ago truly felt like a blatant misdirection. The latest incident involving the meeting with Vikings teammates almost feels like it was orchestrated by some producer in Hollywood.
Considering Favre's flirtation with film and commercials, this is not surprising either.
With Favre officially back, the Vikings now will finish implementing their offense and building on last year's success.
Favre is back whether anyone likes it or not, and the "will he or won't he retire" drama can start all over again.
Mark your calendars for the Green Bay games. They're going to be fun.
