FavreWatch: He's in the building

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- To the extent that anyone was curious, I can confirm that Brett Favre arrived at Minnesota's practice facility at about 5 p.m. ET. He was riding shotgun in placekicker Ryan Longwell's SUV. There has still been no official word on Favre's status from the team, although I think we can safely assume Longwell's indoor workout is over.

Seriously, about 100 fans lined the narrow curb to welcome Favre back to Minnesota. But I don't think many people were surprised that this day came to pass. The real question is whether he'll practice Wednesday and if he'll play Sunday night at San Francisco.

We're awaiting word on whether Favre will hold a news conference later Tuesday, but in the meantime I'll be working on a post on expectations for Favre's second season in Minnesota.
