Vikings to get first-hand look at Favre's arm this weekend

McClatchy News Service

ESPN reported Friday that a member of the Vikings’ coaching staff and an athletic trainer will travel to Hattiesburg, Miss., to work with the retired quarterback. The network, citing a source, did not reveal the specific coach, but offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has a close relationship with Favre, dating to their time together in Green Bay. The head athletic trainer is Eric Sugarman.

Favre reportedly had surgery to repair a partially torn biceps tendon two weeks ago. Childress told KFAN Radio this week that he’s "anxious" to see Favre throw, but he has declined to speculate when that might happen.

This is just the latest indication that Favre’s signing is inevitable assuming his arm fully recovers. The Vikings held their final off-season workout Friday and do not report to training camp until July 29.
