Vikings tell Favre to stop being indecisive, make decision this week
According to ESPN, the Minnesota Vikings are getting a little fed up with Brett Favre's constant state of indecisiveness. We don't blame them.
The flailing kind-of retired quarterback has surgery on his throwing arm last month, but is supposedly still unsure if it's ready for the field again. The Vikings are so desperate to add him to the team they are willing to take him no matter what his throwing arm is like. That's just called a good revenue move and nothing else.
More from ESPN:
Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has imposed a deadline of this week for Brett Favre to decide whether he will be the team's quarterback for the upcoming season, according to two sources.
Favre, however, is apparently reluctant to commit to playing a 19th NFL season without first being more confident the arthroscopic surgery performed recently on his throwing shoulder has succeeded in eliminating all of the problems related to a torn biceps tendon.
It would seem reasonable that both Favre and the Vikings want to know his shoulder is healthy before reaching an agreement, and the team is virtually certain to insist on seeing the 39-year-old quarterback throw before any contract is signed. Minnesota has four organized team activity sessions this week, beginning Tuesday.
