UPDATE: Favre to Sign with Vikings Pending Physical
Favre is on currently on his way to Minneapolis and is expected to sign with the team this afternoon, the source said.
WCCO-TV spoke with an official at the Hattiesburg, Miss., airport, who saw an airplane with the Vikings logo leave the airport Tuesday morning. The flight number for that plane has been blocked from tracking systems.
Speculation that Favre would be joining the Vikings roster abruptly ended in late July when head coach Brad Childress said the quarterback would remain in retirement.
On July 28, Childress said that he received a phone call from Favre and announced the quarterback would remain retired, though now it appears that declaration was perhaps a bit premature.
UPDATE: Every minute this looks more official. ESPN is now reporting that Favre is set to sign a one-season contract for between $10-$12 million, "pending a physical."
