(WAOW) - Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress confirms reports that Brett Favre will not sign with the Vikings.

This is the statement released by Childress through the Vikings public relations department.

"It was a rare and unique opportunity to consider adding not only a future Hall of Fame quarterback but one that is very familiar with our system and division. That does not detract from the team that we have. As we have consistently communicated, we feel good about our team and they have put forth a tremendous effort this offseason preparing for the season ahead.  With this behind us, we look forward to getting to Mankato and getting training camp underway."
