Childress talked to Favre last week, learned little

Donovan McNabb doesn’t figure to be following Brett Favre in Minneapolis.

Not now anyway, and that has nothing to do with Favre’s plans to return or retire in 2010. After trading for McNabb, the Washington Redskins figure to have a contract in place for McNabb for the next few years. That would all but rule out him going to Minnesota.

So instead of looking beyond Favre, Vikings followers can focus on whether or not Favre will be back. The draft is fast approaching and the Vikings (and Favre???) still have no clue whether or not he intends to fulfill the second year of a two-year contract he signed last August.

"I still don't, one way or the other," Vikings coach Brad Childress said on KSTP Radio in Minneapolis, per the Star Tribune. "I don't know if he's even thought about it or contemplated it. I (talked) with him briefly last week and I'm sure we'll narrow it down as we get a little bit further."

Until Favre says no, it looks like most people are going to assume he’ll be back for another fling. The Vikings will have to look elsewhere for a longterm replacement though. As much as McNabb might have preferred a landing in Minneapolis, that is not going to happen.
