Tavaris Jackson Doesn't Care If Brett Favre Misses Camp

In an attempt to milk as much “drama” from the Brett Favre situation as possible, very few have taken the crazy, totally insane step of asking Favre’s teammates and what they think about the situation.

Well, somebody finally did. Specifically, they asked the player on the Vikings’ roster that has the most to gain or lose from Favre’s presence, backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.

“You all watch TV the same way I do,” Jackson said, smiling. "He ain’t working out for no reason. I welcome him back. There’s nothing I can do about it so I’m going to welcome him back and hopefully get to the Super Bowl.”

↵Jackson said the timing over when Favre will announce his decision doesn’t affect his approach to camp. He went through a tougher situation last season when he entered training camp thinking he’s competing for a starting job.

Which begs the question. . .if Favre’s teammates don’t care about the fact that he’s going to miss training camp, why on earth should anybody else?
