Report: Brett Favre Flying to Minnesota, Likely Rejoining Vikings

The question of "will he or won't he?" in regards to Brett Favre's return may have been answered on Tuesday and it looks like he will.

Apparently the veteran quarterback boarded a plane and is on his way to Minnesota where he is expected to announce his return to the Vikings for what would be his 20th NFL season the Biloxi Sun Herald is reporting.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported earlier in the day that a trio of Vikings — Ryan Longwell, Jared Allen and Steve Hutchinson — missed practice this morning to head to Mississippi to visit with Favre. Apparently, whatever they said worked.

The news, coincidentally comes one day before the one-year anniversary of Favre signing a two-year deal with the Vikings. reports that Favre's website emailed members of the media today saying "Stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre's possible return."
