Brett Favre Coming Back?

Looks like the sojourn of the NFL's second most-prolific team-killer is maybe not quite at an end.

Brett Favre is apparently considering a second return to the NFL (in two years) as he's been removed from the retired list and the Jets have waived him.

The move Tuesday night means the Jets no longer hold the rights to Favre, who spent one disappointing season in New York. The 39-year-old Favre had requested the move several weeks ago through agent Bus Cook, but insisted he has no plans to come out of retirement for a 19th season.

Favre said in a statement he had no intention of returning to football.

Yeah, right...and Favre was "done" with football at his teary press conference in early 2008.  And he was "done" with football when he didn't want to get arthroscopic surgery on his arm last year (after killing the Jets' season down the stretch with shoddy and selfish play).  And I'm sure he's "done" with football now...at a time when the team he wanted to sign with all along (the Vikings) is still in need of a quarterback and are being touted as championship contenders.

My prediction for this year is that unless the Vikings decide that Favre's too washed-up to play, we'll see him in a Minnesota uniform this season if Favre has anything to say about it.  Only question I have is, does waiving Brett Favre release the New York Jets from their "poison pill" clause if Favre signs with the Vikings?  Does anyone know if the terms of the trade included the possibility of Favre getting waived?
