Vikings Kicker On Favre's Return: 'It's 50-50'

It's long been presumed that Brett Favre would return for the 2010 season. The fact that he recently had ankle surgery only seemed to strengthen the thought that he would return.

According to Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell, Favre's return is "50-50" at this point. Longwell doesn't have any inside information at this point but talked about the possibility of the silver-haired quarterback coming back for one more go-round.

"I think it's 50-50 either way," said Longwell, who is a golf buddy of Favre's and was a teammate with the Green Bay Packers.

"He played so well (last season), and I think there's a desire that this team has a chance to go a long way. That would be the reason to come back. But at the same time, he was so at peace with how he played last year — late in the season — and that would be the reason not to come back."

Vikings linebacker Ben Leber feels a little more strongly about the situation. In his opinion, Favre will be back.

"But that's just my personal opinion," Leber said. "You can never count him out. He's such a true competitor, the way he exhibits how much he loves the game. During my short time with him last year, you could see thatpretty clearly. I just have a feeling his competitive spirit will bring him back."
