PETER KING BELIEVES FAVRE WANTS TO BE A VIKING
Sports Illustrated and NBC’s Peter King was a guest on ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” today and said that he firmly believes Brett Favre has “had enough” of playing in the NFL. According to King, Jets doctors told Favre that he needed surgery on his right biceps tendon if he wants to play next season and by passing on the surgery Favre is making his intentions clear. King then hedged his bet by saying that Favre still believes he can play but “won’t play if he can’t play where he really wants to play.” When asked where that might be, King said he had a “gut feeling” that he’d like to play for the Vikings. In his Monday Morning Quarterback column, King said that Favre’s interest in returning to the Jets was squashed by owner Woody Johnson’s demand that he participate in the full offseason program. Favre never did that in Green Bay and doesn’t plan to start now. Other than Favre, the Jets have three quarterbacks on their roster. Kellen Clemens is the only one with experience as a starting quarterback, and neither Brett Ratliff nor Erik Ainge has thrown a pass in a NFL game.
