The Gray Eagle has landed

I'm at Flying Cloud airport, where the private jet carrying Brett Favre and three teammates -- Ryan Longwell, Steve Hutchinson and Jared Allen -- has landed.

The players got out and are headed out to Winter Park.

Longwell drove Favre out the gate.

Local TV stations carried Favre's arrival live.

No word on whether there will be a news conference today yet ...

Favre's website posted a message earlier saying "stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre's possible return." There's still no official word from the team.
