Brett Favre: 'I Do Not Have A Lot Of Time To Think About How They Can Agree On A Four-Year, $35 Million Extension Contract'
By Jeremy McRobotface
MINNEAPOLIS—After the Minnesota Vikings signed Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre to a four-year, $35 million extension this week, Favre expressed disappointment that the team would not be able to agree on a new contract before the 2011 season, saying that he "just doesn't have the time" to think about how he can get the Vikings' contract through. "I've been working on the Vikings contract for about six weeks, and I have a lot of things I need to do," Favre said. "I know the Vikings franchise is in a pretty rough spot, especially after coming out with the one-yard reception against the Green Bay Packers last week. But I feel like I have a real shot at winning this thing if I just keep focusing on it." Favre added that he hoped to sign the Vikings contract before the 2009 NFL season, as he is currently contemplating the possibility of signing the 2007-2008 NFL franchise.
