Report: Childress, Favre will meet tonight

Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert Favre
Minnesota continues to pursue retired quarterback Brett Favre in expedient fashion. Vikings coach Brad Childress is scheduled to begin meeting with Favre over dinner Wednesday night in Mississippi, according to the Star Tribune. The meeting is expected to continue into Thursday.

The Vikings can afford to give Favre a bit of breathing room after this meeting. Their first organized training activity isn't scheduled until May 19. Their mandatory veteran minicamp, which starts May 29, is three weeks away.

Childress is certainly collecting some high-visibility frequent flier miles these days. Four days before the draft, he traveled to Gainesville, Fla., to meet with Florida receiver Percy Harvin. With Childress' blessing, the Vikings eventually drafted Harvin with the No. 22 overall pick in the first round.
