At least he is getting good at retiring. Maybe he just likes having retirement parties.
In the latest sign that Brett Favre will never retire, a report out Tuesday afternoon says the future Hall of Fame quarterback plans to meet with the Minnesota Vikings this week.
Ed Werder of ESPN is reporting that Favre and Vikings coach Brad Childress will meet at an undisclosed location and explore the possibility that Favre could play the 2009 season in Minnesota. According to Werder, Favre and the team have a mutual understanding that he will decide soon whether he's going to play this year, and that if he decides he will play, he'll be fully committed to the team's off-season program.
Favre retired after the 2007 season with the Packers, then came back, was traded to the Jets, and retired again after the 2008 season. But the Jets released him last week, meaning he is an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team that wants him. It sounds like there's at least a chance that the Vikings want him and that he wants the Vikings, and that Favre will play against the Packers twice in 2009.
