The Brett Favre-to-the-Vikings momentum still won't stop.
Almost three weeks since Favre told Vikings coach Brad Childress he wouldn't come out of retirement to join the team, two veteran NFL reporters are suggesting Monday that the quarterback could be back in play.
Fox Sports' Jay Glazer and SI.com's Peter King wrote Monday that they each think Favre and the Vikings will resume their courtship.
"After visiting the Vikings training camp for two days, I am convinced - positively convinced - that Brett Favre will soon have talks with the Vikings to return to the team and could be joining them for this season after all. If my instincts are correct, all those purple Favre jerseys will have a home on Minnesota store shelves."
"I think the Minnesota Vikings, should they struggle at quarterback, will call Brett Favre. It's a pretty strong feeling, based on knowing the people involved and based on the desperation of the Vikings to do more than win a division this year."
Both writers qualified their statements as mere guesses, not based on information they've gleaned that Favre will join Minnesota definitively. And both King and Glazer allowed that some combination of good play from current Vikings QBs Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson could stop the Favre momentum.
