Minnesota Vikings Inside Slant 2009-05-15


Minnesota Vikings Inside Slant 2009-05-15
Mark Wilf, team co-owner and president, made it clear this week that the Vikings have interest in Brett Favre. That confirmation came as no surprise given the numerous reports circulating about the for-now-retired quarterback coming back to play for Minnesota.


But Wilf declined to elaborate much on the subject during a Vikings community tour event in Marshall, Minn. That leaves one to only guess if Favre will end up in purple and how the Vikings are prepared to handle the situation if the longtime Green Bay Packer remains retired.

Remember, the Vikings acquired Sage Rosenfels from Houston for a fourth-round draft pick in February and had planned to have him battle Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job in training camp.

That might still end up happening, or not.

Vikings coach Brad Childress hasn't commented on the topic since May 1 and that was only days after Favre had been given his release by the New York Jets and before the whole Favre-to-the-Vikings circus kicked into high gear.

There is no indication as to which facts -- and opinions -- Rosenfels and Jackson have been given as to where things stand. Rosenfels expected to have the first opportunity of his nine-year career to actually win the No. 1 job.

If Rosenfels and Jackson do end up being the top two quarterbacks, the Vikings likely are going to have some work to do when it comes to repairing the players' confidence.

That is certainly one reason why Wilf chose his words extremely carefully when asked about the Favre situation.

"I just want to emphasize that with Sage and Tarvaris and John David (Booty, the Vikings' No. 3 quarterback), we are pleased with the quarterbacks that we have," Wilf said. "Let's not let that get forgotten here. We just feel as a whole, as a roster, we are trying to improve every day."
