Brett Favre Lands In Minnesota, Reportedly Ready To Rejoin Vikings

ESPN reports that Brett Favre’s airplane arrival in Minnesota is now complete and his teammates are saying he’s there to play.

The 40-year-old quarterback returned to Minnesota on Tuesday, arriving in a private jet trimmed in the Vikings’ purple and gold with three teammates — guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive end Jared Allen and place-kicker Ryan Longwell — who were sent to Hattiesburg, Miss., to bring him back for one more shot at a Super Bowl.

Longwell told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols in a text message that Favre told the three he would play for the Vikings this season.

“We simply went down there to get an answer and after talking for a while, his answer was ‘yes,’” Longwell said in the message. “He loves the guys in the locker room and is doing it for all of us.”
