Does Favre still want to play for the Vikings?

Dennis Dillon of Sporting News.com is pondering that very question:

Brett FavrePardon me for being skeptical, but I can’t help wondering if there’s a hidden agenda here. Is Favre, 39, really hanging it up this time? Or is he clearing a path for a return with another team — like, for instance, the Vikings?

In a sense, Favre has had a symmetrical football career. He played 16 years in Green Bay, sandwiched between a beginning bookend year in Atlanta and a finishing bookend year in New York.
What does he have left to accomplish?

He is a three-time NFL most valuable player. He went to two Super Bowls and won one. He owns numerous NFL passing records, and he certainly will be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.

But somehow, I can’t help but think we haven’t seen the last of Brett Favre. I get the feeling he’s not ready to close the book on his football career. Don’t be surprised if he comes back for a 19th season.
After all, there’s no limit on the number of times he can retire.

I truly believe Favre just likes new challenges at this point in his career. He was done with the Green Bay thing, so he tried the Big Apple. That wasn’t entirely to his liking and for some strange reason there seems to be a notion that he has a desire to play in Minnesota. Maybe he has some strange hard on for walking into Lambeau Field as a member of another team just to see how Packer fans would react. Or maybe he wants to see a fan base like Minnesota cheer him after years of despising him.

Whatever his reason, I’m with Dillion – something tells me Favre isn’t done.
