GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Brett Favre continues to warm up to the idea of getting his Number 4 retired by the Green Bay Packers.
After his 2008 blowup with the team, and his subsequent indifference to being honored in Titletown, Favre now tells a Buffalo radio station he’s “honored” by the thought of being a Green Bay immortal.
Favre says it will happen – though he’s not sure when.
He said Packers’ president Mark Murphy has talked with him on numerous occasions. Murphy says he wants to honor the future Hall of Fame quarterback when he’s ready – although Favre says he would never tell the Packers what to do in that regard.
The three-time league MVP said time heals a lot of wounds. He said all sides, including himself, were to blame for what happened in 2008 when he retired, decided he wanted to come back, and was rejected after Aaron Rodgers was named the Pack’s starting quarterback.
Favre ended up playing 3 more seasons with the New York Jets and Minnesota before retiring two years ago.
Favre made his latest remarks while in Buffalo for a charity auction put on by former Bills’ quarterback Jim Kelly.
