Childress Never Set Favre Deadline

Judd Zulgad, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said during a radio interview that he never set a deadline of this week for free-agent QB Brett Favre (Jets) to decide whether he will play for the Vikings in 2009. “Absolutely not, there was no deadline,” Childress said. “Maybe by (Favre’s wife) Deanna or somebody like that, but certainly not from me. Not even close. Don’t know where that would have dropped out of the sky from.”
