Report: Favre to meet Vikings this week

MINNEAPOLIS, May 5 (UPI) -- Quarterback Brett Favre may come out of retirement to play for the Minnesota Vikings, ESPN reported Tuesday.

ESPN.com reported Favre has a meeting scheduled with Vikings Coach Brad Childress this week. The sports network said the meeting will be to discuss the possibility of the twice-retired NFL quarterback playing for the Vikings.

Favre suffered a torn biceps tendon late last season with the New York Jets and did not have surgery to repair the damage. "It all comes down to physically how I feel, and that could change based on arthroscopic surgery, but I'm not willing to do that or take that chance, and that's why I'm retiring," Favre had said.

Favre spent 18 seasons in the NFL and starred for 16 years with the Green Bay Packers, who acquired him from Atlanta before the 1992 season. He was a seven-time All-Pro and was selected to 10 Pro Bowls, including this past season with New York.

Favre passed for 65,127 yards with 464 touchdowns and 310 interceptions. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XXXI.
