QB Brett Favre deliberated all offseason on whether to come back from retirement and play for the Vikings, a team coming off a division championship with many pieces in place but also looking for stability from the QB position.
After 17 years in the league and a throwing arm that required surgery this offseason, Favre was reluctant to come back and play for the Vikings. But that reluctance eventually gave way to what Favre characterized a “perfect fit.”
After a phone call from Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress and more conversation with his family, Favre decided to come back to the NFL and suit up in Minnesota.
“Everyone who I’ve talked to from former players, coaches and just people in general, said if you wanted to go back this is a perfect fit,” Favre said during his introductory press conference. “It really is. Once again, there are no guarantees but we have a really good football team here with a very good running game and from my standpoint I felt like I could offer some experience and leadership.”
