Brett Favre Expected to Have Surgery

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press Brett Favre will meet with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama.  Surgery is planned for later this week and will require a six to eight week rehabilitation.  The surgery will “release the tendon” and is considered fairly routine.  If all goes well Favre will sign with the Vikings, coming out of retirement for the second year in a row.

Favre retired from the Jets in February and was released by the Jets in April following the draft after requesting his release.  Favre has previously stated in there was any chance of him coming back he would need to have surgery which he was previously reluctant to do.  If Favre comes back he should give the Vikings a huge boost.  The Vikings achilles heel the past few years has been quarterback play and Favre would be an upgrade over either Tavaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels as long as he doesn’t play like he did with the Jets down the stretch last year.  Favre did attribute his late season struggles to his bicep problems and before the injury last year was great leading the Jets to an 8-3 start.  Whether Favre makes the Vikings legitimate Super Bowl contenders is another story but his return would certainly improve their chances.
