    Brett Favre has informed the Minnesota Vikings that he will decide upon his 2009-2010 NFL future by July 20th – the date that the Vikings open training camp.  Favre underwent surgery to repair a tendon in the biceps of his right throwing arm in the off-season.  Before he signs a deal with the Vikings, he wants to be 100% sure that he can make it through the rigors of a long, demanding NFL season.  Favre had this to say about his progress: “There’s two weeks left and I’m doing everything that I can.  I was down here Sunday morning working out.  I’m trying to get everything to where I feel 100 percent when I go in.  I can’t go in any less.  When you’re 39 years old, it’s hard enough.  But it’s getting there… I felt like going to New York last year that I still had it.  I didn’t know that my arm was hurt at the time.  So that’s what I try to get across to people.  I had that fixed, the durgery to fix that, so I’m trying to make sure that if I go back that part is completely resolved.

    After leading the Jets to a strong start in 2008-9, the team faded down the stretch and fell out of playoff contention.  Favre ended the season with good stats – 65% completion rate; 3472 yards passing; 22 TD’s and 22 interceptions.  Favre played the previous 16 season with the Green Bay Packers before his controversial departure from the Packers organization during the 2008-9 off-season.  Favre won a Super Bowl with the Packers and holds many career NFL passing records.

    If Favre decides not to play for the Vikings in 2009-10, the Vikings will likely go with Tavaris Jackson at Quarterback for a 3rd straight year.
