Red McCombs has made it something of an art form to deny published reports that he has made a decision regarding the Vikings.
Although VU and others have reported that McCombs has contacted league officials about selling the Vikings, he has adamently denied that he has even spoken with Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor about buying the team.
So it was Sunday when McCombs responded to reports that a team source said the Vikings had contacted Tobin and identified McCombs personal assistant Chad Ostlund as being the person who made the contact.
McCombs continues to deny the contact and said the Vikings are set for the 2003 draft with the people they have in-house.
* VU has been told former coach Dennis Green is likely to meet with Jacksonville Jaguar officials this week to discuss the coach/G.M vacancy with the team.
* Rumors out of Green Bay are that Brett Favre is considering retirement. Had the Packers won the Super Bowl, that would make sense, but Favre isn't likely to go out with the whimper that the Packers did Saturday in their loss to the Falcons.
