Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell, a friend of Brett Favre's, indicated Favre's return to the Vikings is far from a sure thing.
"I think it's 50-50 either way," said Longwell. "He played so well (last season), and I think there's a desire that this team has a chance to go a long way. That would be the reason to come back. But at the same time, he was so at peace with how he played last year — late in the season — and that would be the reason not to come back."
Ultimately, the only person who knows what Brett Favre is going to do is Brett Favre. And half the time, it seems like Brett Favre doesn't know what Brett Favre is going to do. Although Longwell is close with Favre, and his comments can't be dismissed entirely, the smart money would be on Favre playing another season, and being a fairly productive fantasy quarterback.
