Favre watch: Return looks more likely

Posted on: May 24, 2010 2:07 pm

While Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings have refrained from making any statement about whether the veteran QB will return for another season, it looks more and more likely by the day.

Favre recently announced that if he intended to play football this season, his ankle required offseason surgery. Favre has since undergone that surgery.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that several Vikings teammates are keeping in touch with Favre , and he hasn't made any statement to them that hinted that he was contemplating retirement. Favre will likely sit out training camps, OTAs and other team activities, but that was to be expected.

Favre could earn a non-guaranteed $13 million this season, so while money is not Favre's only concern, it is yet another motivating factor in persuading him to give it one more go.
