A lot has happened since Brett Favre played his final game for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have moved on to their first Super Bowl appearance since Favre was under center. And Favre, not to be undone, has moved on to racking up as many sexual harassment complaints that he can. And finally, after all that, it looks like all the hard feelings between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers are long gone. Well, at least on the Packers’ end of things.
The Green Bay Packers are saving a spot in the organization for Brett Favre, team president Mark Murphy said Tuesday.
With the Packers in their first Super Bowl since Favre led the team to one 14 years ago, Murphy said the team wants to restore relations with the quarterback who became iconic with the franchise from 1992-2007.
“Yeah, at the appropriate time, we’ll reach out to him,” Murphy said. “And I envision he’ll come back into the fold.”
Murphy, who said the Packers wondered privately if they made the right decision to move Favre in 2008, said the Packers would eventually retire his number.
“Yeah we want to make sure it’s the right time for him,” said Murphy, who added the team had not yet officially reached out to Favre.
And here you thought Brett Favre was going away? Brett Favre will never go away. Unfortunately.
