Sound Familiar? Favre Returns
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Brett Favre says the strong chance of playing in another Super Bowl brought him back to the NFL -- again.

Favre was back on the field with the Vikings on Wednesday. The three-time MVP started his second season in Minnesota wearing a helmet, shoulder pads and red quarterback's jersey as he worked out with his teammates on their practice field.

He said afterward "this is a very good football team." Favre said the chances of making the Super Bowl with Minnesota "are much greater than other places."

After staying away from training camp, Favre was practicing less than 24 hours after the teams sent three of his closest friends to Mississippi to bring him back following another summer of indecision.

Favre admitted "there is nothing on me that's 100 percent, there wasn't anything that was 100 percent last year or the year before." But he believes ankle surgery "made me a little better."
