The former NFC North nemesis plans to meet with the Vikings. As this gathers buzz, I wanted to highlight two passages from the ESPN report, which I think speak for themselves:

“Favre has not been working out and declined to have surgery to repair the torn biceps tendon that plagued him the final month of last season.”

and

“While Favre had been emphatic about not returning next season, he never anticipated the Jets would release him after drafting Mark Sanchez in the first round”

Not that the Vikings should not proceed forward full-steam on this.
