Vikings Sign Brett Favre!!! (will the media notice?)

WCCO-TV is reporting that a high-level source with the Minnesota Vikings tells the station's Mark Rosen that quarterback Brett Favre is expected to sign with the team today.

Favre is on currently on his way to Minneapolis and is expected to sign with the team this afternoon, the station adding, citing its source.

Chris Mortensen just confirmed it on ESPN Radio. Once he passes his physical, he'll sign a 2 year deal. He gets $10-$12 mil this year. I guess next year is an option year.

Now we get to go through this bullshit again next year.

As I said a few months ago, I'll never believe Brett Favre is retired until he is dead.

Poor Sage, he comes in and looks nice in the first pre-season game...and now he's back on the pine.


Will the Vikes get anything for T-Jack or will they have to cut him?

They couldn't get a ham sandwich for him. He has a bright future in the CFL.

$10-12M? Sheesh. I guess if you have the cap room at this point, it doesn't matter, but that's pretty damn generous.

Yeah, though they got a pick for Troy Williamson, who was an even bigger joke.

I hope all those guys who burned their purple #4 jerseys are going to buy new ones. John David Booty will have to switch again.

Oh well, his plane hasn't landed yet, still plenty of time to change his mind again.

I heard since they love old washed up QBs-they want to sign Dan Marino as a back-up. His has been on the Vikings radar ever since he lost the play-off game to Jacksonville where he stunk up the place.

HA, I was just telling a buddy yesterday that his Steelers weren't winning it this year because Favre would sign with the Vikes and take my boys to the promised land.

re: Vikings Sign Brett Favre!!! (will the media notice?)

Now I know why the Eagles signed Michael Vick. The Vikings thought of him as an option and said, "No wait, we can do worse."

$10-$12MM... Hard to argue with that many zeroes. (If you're Favre).

I hope he goes 0-8, gets benched, and overdoses on pain killers.

Childress confirmed that he is coming.

People sound ecstatic around here...I mean he's an upgrade, but come on...he's 40.

re: Vikings Sign Brett Favre!!! (will the media notice?)

I'm guessing the Monday Night Countdown guys (mainly Tom Jackson) aren't going to retract their angry remarks about those two unnamed players undermining the team yesterday.

Anyway,

re: Vikings Sign Brett Favre!!! (will the media notice?)

Hopefully their O/U win total jumps a couple games, so I can then take the under. Who the hell is he going to throw to - they don't have anyone the caliber of Coles or Cotchery on that team.

In other words, it's starting exactly like it did with Jets fans.

I have little doubt it'll end the same way too.
