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.
