Favre is back in Minnesota

Posted:

EDEN PRAIRIE (KWWL) -- Brett Favre is in Minnesota, stirring hope among Vikings fans that he may be ready to play this season.

A private jet trimmed in the Vikings' purple and gold carrying the quarterback landed at an airport outside Minneapolis on Tuesday afternoon.

Favre's website posted a message earlier saying "stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre's possible return." There's still no official word from the team.

Favre will turn 41 in October and has flirted with retirement for years while playing for the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and now the Vikings. He threw 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season to help Minnesota reach the NFC title game.

He missed training camp this year with an ankle injury.
