Favre Will be a Viking

I woke up this morning with an ESPN Breaking News alert on my phone:

It was about Brett Favre returning to the NFL and signing a 2-year contract worth $10-12 million. WIth the Minnesota Vikings.

A source close to Brett Favre said the quarterback, pending a physical, will sign a contract with the Minnesota Vikings for between $10 million to $12 millionAfter all circus of things that happened this offseason, and after he declared he wouldn't be returning, Favre is still coming back.

ESPN's Cris Carter also announced that Favre will be the starter for Minnesota this Friday against the Chiefs.

After this noisy offseason, I still can't believe Favre is going to be a Viking. After all what has happened--including a Favre call to Brad Childress saying that he won't return--Favre is actually signing with my favorite team.

Favre coming to Minnesota is a dream finally coming true. I have always been an advocate for Favre coming to Minnesota, and now that he is on the team, I believe the Vikings can only get better.
