Even Favre's agent is exasperated
The will he-won't he Brett Favre drama weighs heavily on his confidante and agent, Bus Cook.
In an interview for the August issue of Men's Journal, Cook called Favre "a drama queen" after the QB informed the media that he needed ankle surgery. That revelation caused a flood of phone calls to Cook's office and drew an apology from Favre.
"You never learn," Cook told Favre. "... I've got ... phone calls to make. Thanks to you." More ...
Childress and Favre were seen together Monday at the University of Southern Mississippi's 7-on-7 passing camp for high school players, according to the television station. Favre, 40, has been throwing passes to Oak Grove High School football players while he recovers from offseason ankle surgery.
This year, Favre again has been elusive on whether or not he will play, but he hasn't been shy about talking with the media. He recently opened up to Men's Journal magazine and last week accepted an award at the ESPYs.
Favre told Men's Journal for its August issue that he isn't worried about his health as it relates to playing a 20th NFL season.
"Playing another year probably isn't going to make a difference," Favre told the magazine. "The damage has already been done."
At the ESPYs, Favre said his surgically repaired left ankle is still healing.
Kirwan: No doubt on Favre's future
"I still have a little bit of time and still believe it or not [I'm] not completely healthy," Favre said. "I guess at 40 I may never be. I'm not getting any younger, but I am working hard trying to feel as best I can. Last year, I felt great. My arm was totally different than it was the year before and that made my decision a little bit easier. But we'll see."
Favre added that any comeback thought "starts with the ankle," but he called the Vikings "a great football team" that he admired.
The Vikings are scheduled to open training camp July 30 in Mankato, Minn. Favre skipped training camp last season while he mulled his decision to return.
