The Vikings will be the first team to break camp, in part because of their agreement with Minnesota State University, Mankato. They'll pack up prior to their first preseason game and then gather at their Twin Cities practice facility starting the week of Aug. 15. So if you're wondering when quarterback Brett Favre might report, circle Aug. 16 as a likely possibility on your calendar.
Favre will be a top 10 ranked QB once he returns. Surprisingly, he is slipping in some mock drafts. My take is simply...why have the surgery if you don't plan on returning.
