Favre returning to Green Bay


Brett Favre is coming back to Green Bay.

Sunday, the Green Bay Packers announced that they would be holding a press conference with the Packers Hall of Fame for an announcement about the former quarterback.  Favre later confirmed the news and gave more details.

In a statement on his website, www.officialbrettfavre.com , Favre says:

I’m pleased to announce that I will be returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of my jersey.

It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers.  Now to have my name placed among others such as Starr, Hornung, Kramer, Taylor, Lambeau, Nitschke, Lombardi, Davis, White and Huston is a special honor that I share with all of my teammates and coaches, and that would not have been possible but for the foresight of Ron Wolf, the greatest GM in the history of the NFL.

I’m truly looking forward to celebrating and sharing this special moment with all of the great fans of the Green Bay
Packers.

Go Packers!

Brett

Favre initially retired after the 2007 season only to unretire during 2008 training camp.  The Packers decided to move on with Aaron Rodgers and traded Favre to the New York Jets.  One year later, Favre signed with Minnesota and played with the Vikings for two seasons.
