Reports: Childress hits road, Favre still retired

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Brett Favre and Vikings coach Brad Childress are apparently set for a meeting in Mississippi. But Favre's agent insists the veteran quarterback remains retired.

The Star Tribune of Minneapolis cited an unidentified source on its Web site Wednesday, reporting Childress was expected to dine with Favre in the evening and further discuss on Thursday the possibility of him joining the Vikings.

But USA Today quoted Favre's agent Bus Cook in a story on its Web site, saying his client is not reconsidering his decision to quit football after 18 seasons.

Cook says "to his knowledge" the reports of a Childress-Favre meeting are not true. Cook said Favre told him Tuesday night he didn't know where the story was coming from. Cook said he hasn't been contacted by the team.
