Favre one of five captains for VikingsMINNEAPOLIS – Brett Favre has been selected one of five captains for the Minnesota Vikings this season.
Favre has been with the team for less than a month, but apparently has already made enough of an impression to be elected a captain by his teammates.
Guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive tackle Kevin Williams, linebacker E.J. Henderson and kicker Ryan Longwell are the other permanent captains this season. The Vikings will also pick a sixth captain on a game-by-game basis.
