A year ago, the Minnesota Vikings seemed interested in doing whatever they could to get their hands on Brett Favre. And Favre seemed interested in doing whatever he could to stick it to the Packers. Has anything changed?
The former Packers quarterback was released by the New York Jets yesterday, but he quickly said at this time, he has no interest in making another comeback. According to reports, Favre made the request to the Jets to be released. He had been on the reserve/retired list since Feb. 11, when he announced for a second time that he was retiring from the NFL.
Favre's release means if he were to return to the NFL, he'd be free to sign with any team and because the Jets relinquished his rights, they would not be owed any compensation if Favre signed with another team.
Could we see Favre in a Vikings uniform by next season?
