Favre 'Would Love to Beat the Saints'

The doubts as to whether Brett Favre is coming back are getting less and less as the month of June winds down. On Thursday, No. 4 told the Biloxi Sun-Herald that he would love to beat the New Orleans Saints, the team that Minnesota should have beaten in the NFC Championship Game last season.

In a Thursday morning interview with Sun Herald sports writer Al Jones, Favre, who had just finished an 8-mile bicycle ride, said: ‘‘I would love to go beat the Saints. I know I can still play at a high level. Last year was a great year, but it could have been better (winning NFC Championship).’’

Favre also said his ankle is healing on schedule.

He’s coming back. This isn’t a surprise to anybody who’s been paying attention.
