Although Brett Favre isn’t eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame until 2016, the legendary Quaterback will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in 2015.
Not only did he put up amazing stats and won Super Bowl XXXI for Green Bay he also became the second quarterback in NFL history to record 400 touchdown passes, rising above the Hall of Fame QB Dan Marino.
After playing 16 of his 20 NFL seasons for Green Bay, his career for them ended on a sour note when they traded him to the New York Jets. Favre wanted to come back to training camp of 2008 after he initially decided to retire in 2007, but the Packers opted to stick with Aaron Rodgers leading to his trade to the New York Jets.
The news was announced at a press conference on Monday at 2:30 p.m. ET. “Favre will become the sixth player to have his jersey retired by the Packers, joining Tony Canadeo, Don Hutson, Bart Starr, Ray Nitschke and Reggie White.” A fun fact is that the conference will be taking place a few days apart from when the team made their decision to trade Favre away.
Six years of separation but Favre will be retiring his No. 4 jersey in Green Bay as a Packers QB.
Congratulations Brett Favre.
