The #1 question surround the Vikings this offseason, at least until it’s answered, is “Will Brett Favre be back?”
We’ll save our speculation on it for another day and point out instead that Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress told reporters at Winter Park on Tuesday that he doesn’t have a timeline for a decision from Favre and that he won’t be surprised with the future Hall of Famer’s decision either way.
I just visited with him this morning in the training room,” Childress said. “He’s been here for a couple days getting treatment. (He’s) pretty beat up after that game, even though he was not sacked. But we didn’t really have any meaningful conversation about what’s next aside from he was catching a plane to head home late this morning.”
Asked if any delay in Favre’s decision would make planning more difficult, Childress indicated that the tea m would be fine either way in regard to the salary cap and later in the press conference he said the team would address the issue of bringing a 3rd QB with them to camp when they knew more about Favre’s status.
Childress was then asked what his expectation was regarding Favre’s decision.
“I don’t have an expectation,” Childress said. “I know that he had a great experience here. I know it too well to know that the emotions are a little bit raw right now, that we’re still too close to it. He’s earned his time to be able to step away from it and talk to his family and figure out what he wants to do. I don’t have a strong expectation one way or the other. It would not surprise me one way or the other.”
