Vikings Release Brett Favre
Posted by LOTGK on April 1, 2010
The Minnesota Vikings, in a two pronged attempt to boost sagging season ticket sales and apply pressure on the legislature for a new stadium, released Brett Favre from his contract. Owner Zygi Wilf and head coach Brad Childress both stated that the window of opportunity for the Superbowl is closing and that every team member had to be on board by the start of mini camp for that to become a reality.
In Favre’s place, the Vikings signed a relatively unknown free agent from Atlanta Georgia. Her forty time is slow but she has plenty of wiggle. Her arm strength is weak but her form is perfect and solid. She is certainly to be a favorite inside the locker room.
Sports analysts believe this is a ploy to force Favre into making a decision sooner rather than later about his retirement. Favre was quoted as saying that he would come back for ten more seasons if his center looked that good.
