Report: Favre could be NFL's only active grandfather
Here is a new angle in the will-he-or-won’t-he watch going on in Minnesota.
You know, the one where the Vikings nation is waiting for coach Brad Childress to again climb in the SUV and head to the airport to scoop up the quarterback. Brett Favre. That guy.
Well, Larry Fitzgerald Sr., the father of the All-Pro wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, reported that Favre is about to become Grandpa Favre. This word by way of a tweet from Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee, who picked up on the fatherly news reported by Pops Fitzgerald, who has worked as a journalist in the Minneapolis area for quite some time.
Whether the soon-to-be 40 Favre would weigh the addition of a grandchild to the equation when deciding whether or not to come back for a 20th season, who knows. Fitzgerald Sr. reports that Brittany Nicole, Favre’s daughter, will soon give birth to her first child. This report first surfaced last week.
