Brett Favre: "Back in"
Brett Favre is "back in" as a Minnesota Viking for the 2010-11 season according to Jay Glazer, who covers the NFL for Fox Sports. He posted confirmation of Favre's intentions on Twitter, after another day of speculation kicked off by the absence of three Vikes at training camp who were dispatched to Favre's home in Mississippi.

Glazer would seem to have a legit inside line. His bio on the NFL site reminds us that he was named Sports Illustrated's Media Person of the Year in 2007. And:
He is known for breaking stories, strong opinions and relationships with players, coaches, executives and others associated with the NFL.
All anyone knows right now for sure is that Favre's back in Minnesota. His private jet landed at Flying Cloud airport. He, his wife and maybe the troika of players that went to fetch him, drove to training camp at Winter Park. And that's that. No "official" news until tomorrow.
