    FOX Sports is 'reporting' that one unnamed player is saying that Favre will be joining them this season and that the deal is already done. Another unnamed player is saying that he doesn't know if the deal is done but that Favre will be joining the team by the 3rd preseason game.

    I love Favre, but this is beyond ridiculous. Favre owes it to the fans to come out and refute this story if its not true. He also owes it to the players giving their all to compete for the starting job that he refused to accept. Sage and even Tarvaris deserve better.

    Favre, I have supported you and your waffling but if this story is true, shame on you.

    Hes the Roger Clemens of football. Its a shame too, I always liked Favre, hes just making himself a spectacle, and its tarnishing his image.

    This is not Favre saying this it is members of the Vikings. Maybe they need to stop bringing it up and or going after him.

    agreed.. I think any one of us would be hard pressed to stay retired if a company kept throwing money at us .. if we would come back ...esp for a year ...

    I know, I know.. how many millions can one make..but if you loved your job and enjoyed what you did ...retired and a boss throws money saying come back....who knows

    Favre said I am retired.. unlike Clemens which said he would think about it

    Damn. As much as I love Favre as a football player, I gotta say the dude has some issues.

    Look at www.nfl.com the breaking news banner on the page says Favre close to signing deal today.

    I used to love Brett Favre but the saga that takes place with him year in and year out has greatly diminished any respect I have for him. I feel bad for Sage. I hope Favre flops big time.

    I feel very sorry for Sage but Favre is Favre. I don't like the way he handled it but signing Favre gives the Vikings their best chance to win this year. Favre has done enough in the league and still has a good enough arm (when healthy) to make him very coveted and improve a team's chances. Remember the guy was doing awesome for Jets until his injury.

    He also increased the value of my block of Vikings@Texans preseason tickets tenfold, so call me selfish.

    Honestly, wasn't a fan of Sage starting here but I think he throws enough TDs and about the same Ints lately as Favre. I don't see it as a major upgrade.

    Childress better pray Favre has something left. Otherwise, he's almost guaranteed to be out of a job. The next coach would be drooling with all the talent Childress was unable to succeed with. Plug a decent QB in the offense and they're deep in the playoffs.
