ESPN “stands by reporting”

June 10th, 2009 – 4:14 PM by Chip Scoggins

Judd just passed along an email he received from Bill Hofheimer of ESPN’s communications department regarding the network’s report that the Vikings gave Brett Favre a deadline of this week to make his decision.

As you’re probably aware of by now, Vikings coach Brad Childress shot down that report today during an interview with KFAN Radio’s “Power Trip Morning show.”

Here is Hofheimer’s response in the email to Judd:

“In the course of reporting the news of the deadline, we also noted the possibility that Favre could still join the Vikings once the deadline had passed. Clearly, that’s important context. We stand by our reporting.”

Childress declined our interview request through a spokesperson today. We have media access Thursday morning after an OTA workout that starts at 9:30 a.m. Judd and I will be present and have twitter updates that can be found right here and right here.
