MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings took a different stance on Thursday in what has become the story of the summer in the NFL: They decided NOT to talk about Brett Favre.

The Vikings said Thursday they would not comment on allegations by the Green Bay Packers that they made inappropriate contact with Favre before or during the three-time MVP's effort to un-retire.

"The Vikings are not commenting on the issue. These types of matters are handled by the league," said a statement read by a team spokesman.
