Vikings Reportedly Willing To Offer Brett Favre $20 Million To Play

When news first broke of Brett Favre's (possible) retirement, Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune speculated that the Vikings could offer Favre more money to play a 20th season.

Zulgad now reports that the Vikings are indeed willing to give Favre some extra motivation.

According to NFL sources, the Vikings' pitch to bring back Favre now includes an offer that could pay him $20 million -- $16 million guaranteed, plus incentives potentially worth another $4 million.

Favre signed a two-year, $25 million contract prior to the 2009 season. He was scheduled to make $13 million this season.

If Favre returns in 2010, it will not look like a money-grab, and his public perception will continue to crumble.
