QB | Brett Favre | Retired | Injury News, Fantasy
Continuing an ongoing storyline, QB Brett Favre (shoulder), during an interview on Joe Buck Live, said he is trying not to fuel the fire of the media, but he realizes that he is. He continued discussing the potential of returning and well as joining the Minnesota Vikings. "It's more or less how my arm feels and we'll go from there," Favre said. He said he met with a Vikings' trainer recently, which was simply so the trainer could show him some stretches. Favre said the Vikings have the pieces in place, as they have a great running back (Adrian Peterson) and a great running game. "If I go there, there is no guarantees," Favre said. He went on to say that if he were to join Minnesota, it comes down to knowing the team, knowing you can run the ball and complete passes, which should lead to the team being pretty good.
