Agent: Brett Favre Will Play If Healthy, Money Not An Issue

Brett Favre told ESPN's Ed Werder on Wednesday that he would play for the Vikings in 2010 if his surgically repaired ankle heals properly.

Now his agent, Bus Cook, has gone on the record with the same stance.

"As far as Brett is concerned, in spite of reports to the contrary, Brett's situation has nothing to do with his contract, but everything to do with his health and ability to contribute to that team and play at a level that he has been accustomed to playing over the years," Cook told Mariucci. "Brett's ankle, which needed surgery since 2007, was surgically repaired this last spring by Dr. James Andrews. Until such time, Brett feels he can play at a level that he expects of himself, no decision will be made.

"Brett has an appointment to see Dr. Andrews next week and will know more at that time. Brett continues working every day, rehabbing his ankel and will see after his visit with Dr. Andrews what his status is at that time."

Several reports have said Favre would be more likely to come back if the Vikings offered him more money but apparently that's not the case, according to the man who negotiates those contracts. Cook also reiterates Favre's stance that no decision has been made.

The next step in this will be his meeting with Dr. James Andrews next week. If that goes well, we could see him in training camp.
