It looks like the Minnesota Vikings have suspended their pursuit of Brett Favre. According to ESPN, Brad Childress and the Vikings were looking for Favre to participate in some of the team's OTAs this week. But he been a no-show. From ESPN's Ed Werder,
The Minnesota Vikings have at least temporarily suspended their pursuit of Brett Favre after the retired quarterback failed to report to organized team activities that began Tuesday as head coach Brad Childress had mandated, according to team and league sources.
This decision actually makes me very happy. After all the commotion, I started to get excited for the possibility of Favre starting with the Vikings.
But, with all the drama unfolding the past month, I began to have second thoughts myself. He is a basket case, full of media attention. And I'm not sure the Vikings needed that.
But most of all, I'm happy to know the decision is over.
Now, the Vikings can move on with their roster. And start preparing for a Super Bowl trip coming this February.
Whether it be Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels to start at QB, the Vikings can finally embark on their 2009 season!
