It's nearly official: Brett Favre is back.
The Vikings quarterback did indeed take a flight from Hattiesburg, MS back to Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon. He was chauffeured back to Winter Park by friend and Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell upon arriving at the airport.
A local TV station even carried a live feed of Longwell's car driving back to the Vikings facilities.
Favre is expected at some point on Tuesday to announce he is returning for a 20th season in the NFL.
During media sessions on Tuesday, Vikings coaches strangely denied that three players were sent down to Hattiesburg, MS Monday night to convince Favre to play a 20th season. It's become obvious at this point that three players did make the trip down there.
