As you all know, reports are flying all over the place about Vikings QB Brett Favre potentially announcing his retirement. The fact of the matter is that Favre has yet to release a statement about his intentions and Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress has not yet heard from Favre about his decision.
“I’m not a big hear-say person,” Childress said when questioned about the reports. “I’m a horse-say, I got to hear it from the horse’s mouth.”
Vikings K and long-time Favre teammate Ryan Longwell was on the same line of information that Childress spoke of that he has also not heard Favre mention anything about his retirement.
“Well I got a text from him, but no, he hasn’t mentioned anything like that [retirement],” Longwell said. “I told him about the free buffet at Pizza Ranch and he said he’d be on the next flight up, so I don’t know if that will turn him around to get up here sooner than later but he certainly didn’t say that he was ending it or retiring.”
Keep in mind that these reports have not yet been confirmed. Training camp will continue this afternoon with practice at 3:00 p.m. We will continue to keep you updated on any Favre reports along with Mike’s observations from the afternoon practice. I’ll be watching the safeties again and I’ll try to get a few words in from Tyrell Johnson, Jamarca Sanford or Madieu Williams, so keep it here on vikings.com.
