With Donovan McNabb Going to Redskins, Is Brett Favre's Return Imminent?

Perhaps Vikings head coach Brad Childress knows something we don't know.

With Childress' protege Donovan McNabb on the trade block in Philadelphia, the Vikings seemed to be front runners in the McNabb sweepstakes.

Childress was McNabb's QB coach from 1999-2002 and his offensive coordinator from 2003-2005.

Childress personally lobbied the Eagles to select McNabb with the second pick of the 1999 NFL Draft ahead of other top-rated quarterbacks like Akili Smith, Daunte Culpepper, and Cade McNown.

The Vikings are becoming known for making splashes during the offseason, most recently the acquisitions of Brett Favre, Steve Hutchinson, Bernard Berrian, and Jared Allen.

If Childress wanted McNabb, he could have gotten him.

But only one thing stood in the way of McNabb coming to Minnesota.

Brett Favre.

The NFL legend who led the Vikings to the doorstep of the Super Bowl last season is still undecided if he will return or retire.

This is a different scenario than last offseason, when the Vikings were waiting for Favre to sign. This time, Favre is under contract.

With the Vikings not actively pursing McNabb, it has to lead fans to believe that Favre is expected by Vikings management and coaches to return for a 20th NFL season.
