A year ago it became pretty clear that Vikings players grew tired of the constant questions surrounding Brett Favre and whether the quarterback would end his retirement to play in Minnesota.
While technically the Favre Watch is back on this spring, many of those same players no longer seemed annoyed and are now, much like many Vikings fans, just waiting for Favre to announce that he will play a 20th season in the NFL.
“Honestly, I’m not too worried about it," linebacker Ben Leber said. "Just looking at his competitive spirit it seems like he’s the type of guy that I think would want to come back and help this football team and I think sees what we have to offer. Obviously, it’s a tough decision but certainly I’m not going to dwell on it. When it comes too we’ll deal with it then.”
Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe said the fact Favre had arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle last month certainly is a good sign. "But that’s just my personal opinion," Shiancoe added. "That has nothing to do with what’s good for him and his family.”
