After Brett Favre’s first public appearance since the NFC championship game on the ‘Tonight Show’ with Jay Leno last week, it’s still unknown whether the future Hall of Fame quarterback will return to the Vikings next season.
The drama now appears to be a six-week waiting game.
There are several angles to this year’s Favre circus. If he truly planned to retire, it would seem he already would have announced it, as future hall of famer Kurt Warner did after his season ended last year with the Arizona Cardinals.
So Favre’s game plan now could be that he and agent Bus Cook are waiting for Vikings owner Zygi Wilf to improve the $13 million contract he already has for the coming season.
