Brett Favre is reportedly on an airplane and headed to (presumably) Minnesota -- NFL Network's Scott Hanson reported on Twitter that Favre "is on a jet heading north."

We earlier mentioned the report that Jared Allen, Ryan Longwell and Steve Hutchinson (three of Favre's best friends on the Vikings) were in Minnesota visiting Favre and urging him to either a) return to the team or b) just make up his freaking mind about playing in 2011.

It would seem , at least based on Hanson's report, that the trio of ambassadors were successful in convincing Favre to return. (Or fly to Minnesota just to announce that he WON'T return, which given Favre's history, is totally within the realm of possibility.)

Either that or we have a very awkward and very public case of kidnapping on our hands.

It's worth noting too that Favre must really be getting old, because he's losing his touch on dragging out his press coverage -- a younger gunslinger would have let the story about the Vikings football-style intervention marinate in the press for a few hours before generating a new story.

Update (2:57): Bob Holtzman, who has likely been living in a tent at the Haittesburg airport for the past three months, reports that Favre "boarded a plane" about "40 minutes ago" ... that plane is indeed headed to Minneapolis.

Update (2:59): Jay Glazer tweets that Favre told the trio of visitors that he is "back in."

Either way - this sounds like a Crisco sausage party to me...Wranglers and Crisco and 4 football boys....nothing out of the norm for Mississippi.

Solid Gold you have the audacity to comment on my name. You should change your name to Fool's Gold because just like fool's gold you and your comments are completely worthless.

Your idol Brett Favre was not center of the football universe this spring and summer and I know that it really broke your heart, but too bad because there are more important things in the sports world then a guy trying to determine whether to come back and play for one more season.

Little boy go pick up the broken pieces of your heart then head to your room and stare at the Fathead of Brett Favre that you have hanging up and let the grown folks talk because you are babbling idiot with nothing of relevance to say.

Somebody will.....and it will be this year.  Maybe then we can get back to people that can make up their mind and not play with others minds.  He cares only about himself.

I knew it, even as a Packers fan I hoped Brett Favre would return to the game, he has been a major part of the NFL for the majority of my life, and when he finally does retire the league will be really different i hope he can retire a champion though
