Former Cal placekicker Ryan Longwell was one of three current Minnesota Vikings players that recently visited Brett Favre in Hattiesburg, Miss., and returned to Minnesota with the quarterback in a private jet. Longwell told ESPN's Rachel Nichols in a text that Favre told him and fellow Vikings teammates Steve Hutchinson and Jared Allen that he would play for the Vikings in 2010.
"We simply went down there to get an answer and after talking for a while, his answer was 'yes,'" Longwell told Nichols in a the message. "He loves the guys in the locker room and is doing it for all of us.
Longwell gave Favre a ride to Vikings headquarters, with his black BMW SUV being followed by three helicopters from local television stations.
