A source close to Brett Favre said the quarterback, pending a physical, will sign a contract with the Minnesota Vikings for between $10 million to $12 million, according to ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.


Chris Mortensen tells Colin Cowherd that Brett Favre is headed to Minnesota today and will sign with the Vikings pending a physical.

Favre, a longtime star in Green Bay, came out of retirement last season to play for the Jets. He retired again, only to then entertain the idea of joining the Vikings. Last month, Childress said the quarterback would stay retired.

The pronouncement now appears to be premature.

According to Mortensen, the Vikings had sent their private plane to Hattiesburg, Miss., and left with Favre on it at 10 a.m. ET. The plane is expected to land in Minneapolis at about noon ET; Favre is expected to take a physical later Tuesday.

Two television stations reported that Favre was seen boarding a plane Tuesday morning that was headed to Minneapolis.

Sources told WDAM in Hattiesburg that Favre had said: "We may know something by dinner."

According to Minneapolis television station WCCO, a high-level source also said that Favre is expected to sign a deal with the Vikings on Tuesday.

I'm very tired of hearing about Brett Farve. Not only have I never been a fan of his, but he is also a second tier quarterback nowadays. If it was peyton manning or Tom Brady signing with the VIkiings I would care a little more, but Farve has proved the past 2 years that he isn't the same as he used to be...(which isn't to say he shouldn't be a starter, because he should, he's just obviously not the same player he used to be).

This guy needs to die. He's a bigger attention ***** than that scene chick down the street.

I've lost so much respect for Brett Favre over the past few years. He used to be my favorite player. He's not even that good anymore, and I don't know why he keeps pulling moves like this.

I agree with DardoBoy

with him as a starter he wont be able to lead any team to a championship now, he is REALLY getting old.

hopefully in the next few years he just stops all this nonsense and takes a job as a quarterback coach or accepts some sort of veteren trainer role with a team close to home.

like jerry rice did.

Because people keep giving him trucks full of money.

The Vinkings!!???


Yeah, the Minnensontan Vinkings.


But seriously, Favre should've stayed retired. I honestly think he chose nearly the perfect time to retire; his legacy was still intact and people didn't really want to let go. But then he came back... and sorta ruined it...

I think it's pretty sad that he would do this just to spite the Packers.

I agree except a couple of years ago for packers he was insane; he should have retired then, instead of trying to re-ignite his career, he is going to be remembered by the next generation as the old washed up guy, instead of the awesome packers QB of the 90s and early 00s

Uhh, Favre isn't exactly a great quarterback anymore. I wouldnt even call him good. The Jets last year proved that he's ho-hum at best now.

Well everytime he is going to retire he ends up wasting all his money on hookers and needs more so he really can retire

I kind of wish Favre wasn't coming back, at least with the Vikings. I think if we give Tarvaris Jackson a season or two he'll mature into a really great quarterback. He has some consistency problems but when he's doing well, he kicks ass. I guess in the mean time Farve can take over (and wither away) but I don't see him being our biggest asset, dude's old. I just hope he lasts through the season.

Hell yeah! I think Rodgers is going to be great one day. He was okay last season, but I really do think he has yet to reach his peak.. and when he does he will be amazing..
