MANKATO (GaeaTimes.com)- Although multiple media sources on Tuesday came up with reports that the Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback player Brett Favre has told the officials of the club that he will not return for a 20th NFL season of his, the Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said to media sources that the team has not received any such message or statement from the player. Not only the coach but many other players of the Minnesota Vikings said that they have not heard anything from Brett Favre.
Coach of Minnesota Vikings Brad Childress called the present situation of Brett Favre as “fluid” and maintained that there are chances that the player will be returning to join the team next month when the NFL season begins. However, he told to media sources that he would not be surprised if the player decides to retire. He maintained that the team can continue to live either way with the decision of Brett Favre. The player had joined the team late last season after a surgery in his torn right biceps muscle.
Reputed media sources on Tuesday came up with reports that Brett Favre had started telling team officials on Monday about his decision to retire from the NFL. Reports claimed that the player had sighted his left ankle injury, for which he underwent a surgery in May, as the reason for his retirement. Media reports claimed that Brett Favre had informed personally the officials by sending text messages. However, this is not for the first time that the player has decided to retire from the NFL. Both in 2008 and 2009 the player had declared his retirement and reemerged to join New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.
