According to many rumors that have floated around the Internet, quarterback Brett Favre has closed on the purchase of a home in Eden Prairie, MN, where the Minnesota Vikings' team facility is located.

No one has been able to confirm that these rumors are true, but many of the latest reports on Favre being in Minnesota to have his throwing shoulder evaluated make them worthy of discussion.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Favre was spotted at the TRIA Orthopaedic Center in Edina, MN on Monday, where he was reportedly having a doctor look at the arm that he had surgery on during the later part of May.

Previous to that report was confirmation by Mark Rosen of WCCO in Minneapolis that Favre and the Vikings had come to a contractual agreement and that he would report to training camp during the last week of August.

With all of the latest reports, and with the newest buzz that the future Hall of Fame quarterback has bought a home in Minnesota, it may just be a matter of time before Favre is brought before the media holding a purple uniform and is officially named the next starting quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings.
