News that Donovan McNabb's first choice would be to play in Minnesota if he is traded has reached the Mississippi area.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports that although Brett Favre is aware McNabb would be a good replacement for him in Minnesota, if Favre decides to retire, the veteran remains undecided on his future and the Vikings are not pressuring him to make up his mind about whether he will return in 2010.

This comes as no surprise. It's obvious from talking to Vikings officials that they are quietly confident Favre will return and yet are not 100 percent sure it will happen. Their approach since the season ended has been to give Favre all the room he needs. That approach apparently isn't going to change now.

In other words, if Favre decides not to return, odds are good that Tarvaris Jackson and not McNabb will be his replacement.
