After I point you in the direction of this Scout.com article, please don’t get scared. As far as we know, Brett Favre doesn’t have any plans to return for another season (his brother has already opined that he thinks there’s a 99 percent chance Favre will stay retired).
Whenever Favre is in the news, the questions will always surface.
That said, Favre has been working with (non-retired) Vikings QB Joe Webb in Hattiesburg, Miss., for the “past few weeks.” Again, don’t be frightened. We don’t think Favre is gearing up for another comeback; we’re pretty sure he’s just helping out an old teammate.
“It’s great to have a person like that as my contact,” Webb said. “He can still sling it.”
As Scout writes:
"While conspiracy theorists may point to the meeting as an opportunity for Favre to see the new Vikings playbook -- Webb may have brought one with him to Hattiesburg -- but, for the rest of us, it looks like a win-win situation for two guys from two different generations giving back something to the other."
Unless, of course, both guys end up going for the same thing -- ahem, the Vikings starting QB job. Which would, of course, be a scary proposition.
