EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings say they have a deal to bring Brett Favre back to the NFL.
The 39-year-old quarterback took a plane to Minnesota on Tuesday, drove to Vikings training camp and was in a helmet and pads less than 90 minutes after arriving. His practice jersey was the familiar No. 4, the same number he wore for years with the rival Packers.
The team confirmed a deal was done to The Associated Press, but terms were not immediately disclosed.
This is Favre’s second comeback. A year ago, the former Packers star came out of a short retirement to join the Jets.
