Vikings Reportedly Send Jared Allen, Two Others To Visit Brett Favre

On Tuesday morning the Minnesota Vikings took to the practice field missing three players: DE Jared Allen, G Steve Hutchinson and K Ryan Longwell.

The reason for their absence?

Per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

It's believed the trio was sent to Hattiesburg, Miss., to try to convince [Brett] Favre to return. Sources confirmed the three were not at meetings earlier this morning either.

The last we heard Favre was still interested in playing if his ankle would heal properly. He recently visited Dr. James Andrews in Florida, presumably about his ankle.

Head coach Brad Childress said Tuesday there had been no recent contact with Favre.

Since Favre reportedly sent text messages to teammates indicating his plan to retire, the Vikings have put on the full-court press to get him to return including a pay raise.
