According to his head coach, Brad Childress, Brett Favre will start on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers and play a series or two.
Favre, who went back and forth about returning to the Vikings this season, recently decided he is going to make another run at the Superbowl with Minnesota this year. He also wants to jump right back into the saddle with his club.
“There’s no substitute for calling plays in the huddle in a real game environment, and the only way I’m going to get the speed of the game down is being in games,” he said.
The money for returning won’t be bad either.
He also $8 million of his 2009 salary deferred to this season, plus his base salary will be $13 million this year plus a $3 million dollar signing bonus and an additional $4 million in incentives which are mostly involving the Vikings postseason performance.
Favre’s favorite target, Percy Harvin, will not be with the team for the game against the 49ers, as he suffered a migraine headache and there is no word when he will resume practicing with the team.
