With Favre a free agent, Vikings will weigh their interest in veteran QB

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Brett Favre says he's retired, but Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress acknowledged Friday that it's likely the team will at least assess its interest in the record-setting quarterback later in the offseason.

Brett Favre, QB

2008 Statistics
Completions: 343
Attempts: 522
Passing Yards: 3,472
TD/INT: 22/22

Childress declined to directly answer a question about whether he has recently spoken with Favre. The coach said he has been too busy with the NFL draft and the Vikings' rookie minicamp.

Favre asked for and received his release from the New York Jets earlier this week. Favre, 39, left his future open with the disclaimer "at this time" in a statement affirming his retirement.

The Green Bay Packers filed tampering charges against the NFC North rival Vikings last summer, alleging inappropriate contact with Favre while he was waffling again on his retirement. The league dismissed the case.
