Favre told USA Today on Tuesday that Childress stopped to visit him on his way home from vacation in Florida. The two chatted about a lot of things, but no deadline was imposed for the quarterback to announce a decision about returning for a 20th NFL season.
“Our visit was great,” Favre told the newspaper. “I think the world of him (and) his patience. He and I joked about how there were some rocky times (between them) last year. … We’re both competitors, that happens.”
Favre and Childress had a very public spat in December last season after the two of them argued over play-calling in a loss at Carolina. They resolved their differences and the Vikings advanced to the NFC title game, where they lost in overtime.
