The Vikings must be serious about making sure that Brett Favre is close to if not 100 percent before they wrap up a deal for him. The Star Tribune reports that Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman was in Mississippi Wednesday to talk to Favre about his condition:
Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman was in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Wednesday to check on the physical condition of quarterback Brett Favre, another indication the veteran NFL quarterback is headed for the Vikings.
This is Sugarman’s second visit to Favre in Mississippi. The last time he was there in mid-June, Sugarman gave the former Packers star some exercises he could use following arm surgery. A Vikings source who has been in contact with Favre recently reported that the surgery seven weeks ago was a complete success.
With training camp opening 10 weeks after the surgery, Favre’s arm should be back to full strength.
Now the only real question left is when will the official announcement of Favre being a Viking be made?
