Brad Childress has left Mississippi, and Brett Favre says the Minnesota Vikings' coach gave him no deadline for making a decision on whether to play a 20th NFL season. 

 "The deadline? I don't know,'' Favre told USA Today on Tuesday. "There obviously comes a point where you've probably gone too far, where you just have to move on. He hopes I make the right decision for myself -- one way or the other."

Childress stopped by to see his veteran quarterback on his way back from Florida, according to Favre, who indicated a deadline wasn't even discussed. Childress has made clear throughout the offseason he's OK with Favre taking as much time as he needs -- even if that means skipping all of training camp, as he did last seasno.

"Our visit was great," Favre said. "I think the world of him (and) his patience. He and I joked about how there were some rocky times (between them) last year. All of a sudden, we weren't sittin' on the front porch anymore BS-ing. But any good team has that. We're both competitors, that happens.''

Favre had ankle surgery in May and reiterated his recovery is holding him back. The Vikings open camp a week from Thursday.

"After almost nine weeks, it's not where I would like it to be, but I'm working at it,'' he said. "Maybe it never gets to where I want it to be. Forty years old ... three surgeries ... that's all you need to know.''
