If you haven't heard by now, you're living under a rock. Every sports reporter and news station under the sun is reporting that Brett Favre has signed with the Minnesota Vikings to play another year. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but the contract is worth a reported $10-12 million. The Minnesota Vikings will hold a press conference tonight, but are already touting his presence on their website…see below.
People have been grumbling around our office that "he just won't go away" and "how many times will he retire?" Others shake their head in disbelief and feel like the legend that was Brett Favre is being tarnished and diminished by a guy who just can't give it up.
So what do you think? Will Brett Favre continue to be viewed as the legend that led the Packers or is this just lame? Would you be willing to walk away from $10-12 million in order to protect a legacy you've built? Or would you try and show 'em (again) that you've got one last fight left in ya?
Only time will tell whether he really has some fight left in him and what this will do to his legacy. In the meantime, I'm sure I'm not sure that I'm ready 4 some football, but I'm definitely ready for some football! You?
