Vikings Coach Says Team Has Not Talked Favre Trade

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress says his team has not had contact with the Green Bay Packers regarding a potential trade for quarterback Brett Favre.

Childress dismissed a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that said the Packers have made preliminary contact with the Vikings about Favre. He was reinstated on Monday.

Green Bay has filed tampering charges against the Vikings for alleged inappropriate contact between the Vikings coaching staff and Favre this summer. Childress says he had no update on the outcome of that investigation.
