Favre to visit Leno next week

The most interesting part of Brett Favre’s scheduled television appearance is whether we’ll know anything about his future before then.

Yes, Favre is on Jay Leno’s official guest list for the March 4 taping of the Tonight Show. (I believe SportsbyBrooks.com gets the hat tip for this one.) Will Favre make an announcement, prolong the speculation or wax poetic about a decision he could conceivably make before then? I imagine Minnesota will know Favre’s plans before Leno, but you never know.

In an auspicious bit of timing, the show will air less than two hours before the official start of the NFL’s free agent market. I’ve already got the DVR set.
