Sources: Favre will sign with Vikings today

Quarterback Brett Favre is expected to sign with the Minnesota Vikings this afternoon, a Minnesota television reporter said, citing sources within the Vikings organization.
WCCO-TV reporter Mark Rosen is reporting Favre boarded a plane Tuesday morning at the Hattiesburg Laurel Regional Airport and that the plane landed later in the morning at a small airport in St. Paul, Minn., with Favre shaking hands with the ground crew before jumping into an SUV.
Sources told WLOX-TV that Favre boarded the plane in Mississippi by himself and commented, "We may know something by dinner."
Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com wrote in a blog on Monday, after spending time around the Minnesota Vikings training camp, that a Favre return is still in the works.
"After visiting the Vikings for two days, I am convinced - positively convinced - that Brett Favre will soon have talks with the Vikings to return to the team and could be joining them for this season after all. If my instincts are correct, all those purple Favre jerseys will have a home on Minnesota store shelves," Glazer said.
He added: "During my two days in Mankato, nearly everyone I talked to within the team talked about Favre joining not as an 'if' but rather a 'when.' Players, coaches, team employees ... you name it, they seem to believe it."

I agree. Training camp is over so it’s time for him to play in some games. I’d be PISSED if I am Rosenfels or Jackson.

Favre will be far better than Sage and Tavaris. Good sign, I just wish he didn't waffle about it for 4 months to skip training camp.

I hope Favre steps it up this season and does well for his team.
