A source close to both Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress says the two parties will meet later this week to discuss the possibility of Favre returning to the NFL to play for the Vikes.
If you feel like you've read this story before, that's because it's the same "will he, won't he" drama that's been surrounding Favre ever since he threw that interception in overtime against the New York Giants in that NFC Championship game.
There is a mutual understanding that sometime soon thereafter Favre will decide whether to sign with the Vikings. The team would expect him to participate fully in offseason minicamps and training camps, which he missed last year with the Jets.
Favre has not been working out and declined to have surgery to repair the torn biceps tendon that plagued him the final month of last season.
Favre may believe the injury can heal on its own as did a similar problem with his left shoulder while he played in Green Bay. A source close to Favre told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that how the injury heals will play a role in the quarterback's decision.
You may remember that Favre used to play for the Green Bay Packers. That was before things got super weird for all of us.
This is where you unleash your righteous indignation.
Have at it, kids.
