MINNESOTA–The Minnesota Vikings have been secretly conducting talks with Brett Favre about a comeback, according to well-placed sources.
“It’s no secret we need help at the QB position, and Favre is one of the all-time greats,” said a Vikings executive. “Why wouldn’t we explore every option available to us?”
A call to Favre’s agent was not returned.
Favre has been the subject of speculation nearly every year since he retired from the New York Jets in 2009. He died 14 years ago, but that hasn’t stopped a steady stream of rumors and reports about an imminent return.
“So he’s dead, so what?” said the Vikings executive. “There’s no expiration date on greatness.”
