|Favre Meeting With Vikings Brass
|EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Brett Favre has returned to Minnesota, stirring hope among Vikings fans that he may be ready to play this season.
The 40-year old quarterback arrived in a private jet trimmed in the Vikings' purple and gold colors.
Earlier in the day, Favre's Web site posted a message saying "stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre's possible return."
Presumably, Favre did not make the trip just to tell the Vikings he was retiring. But the Vikings have not given an official confirmation that the star quarterback will play this year.
Favre will turn 41 in October, and has flirted with retirement for years. He threw 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season to help Minnesota reach the NFC title game.
