The Minnesota Vikings completely sold their soul to Brett Favre the minute that Brad Childress went and picked Favre up from the airport last summer. So really, there’s nothing out of bounds for them in their pursuit of him this season. You know this. Brett knows this. And the Vikings most definitely know this.
So the Vikings decided to up the ante just a bit on Favre and send some of Favre’s buddies from the squad down to Hattiesburg to pay him a little visit. And you know, help him with a decision he’s making.
The Vikings appear to be pulling out all the stops in their quest to convince Brett Favre to play a 20th NFL season.
That much became clear as the Vikings began the morning practice on Tuesday at Winter Park without defensive end Jared Allen, offensive guard Steve Hutchinson or kicker Ryan Longwell on the field. All three were at practice Monday and haven’t dealt with injuries of late.
It’s believed the trio was sent to Hattiesburg, Miss., to try to convince Favre to return. Sources confirmed the three were not at meetings earlier this morning either.
When you’re all in, you’re all in.
