Confirming an earlier report by Profootballtalk.com, Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms on a deal, WCCO TV in Minneapolis reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed source.
The deal is laden with incentives, WCCO reported.
Profootballtalk.com had reported Sunday that the deal was done, with the Vikings simply waiting for the right time to announce it.
Favre's agent, Bus Cook, denied the report in an e-mail to the St. Paul Pioneer-Press, writing "no contract."
PFT said that it was tipped off by an officer with the U.S. military serving in Afghanistan, and later another unnamed source said, "I will not deny it either, I will leave it at that."
The officer also said that the Vikings have authorized Reebok to being producing Favre jerseys, a report that also was not denied by the second source.
Dr. James Andrews performed surgery on Favre on May 22 to address an injured biceps tendon.
