Packers Adding Brett Favre to Hall of Fame And Plan To Retire His No. 4

The Green Bay Packers say they plan to add former quarterback Brett Favre to the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame and have his number retired next July 18th. Farve’s No. 4 will be unveiled on the Lambeau Field north end zone at halftime of a yet-to-be-determined game during the 2015 season.

 

Favre, who holds virtually every meaningful NFL career quarterback record, famously retired at a tearful press conference in March 2008, only to change his mind and decide later that year that he still wanted to play, setting up an awkward showdown between him and the team. The quarterback moved on to the New York Jets for a year, retired, then went on to play for the Vikings. Farve retired for good in 2010.

“I was always a Packer … and it’s like borrowed time elsewhere,” Brett Favre

The Packers have retired just five numbers in their 94-year history: Tony Canadeo’s No. 3, Don Hutson’s No. 14, Starr’s No. 15, Ray Nitschke’s No. 66 and Reggie White’s No. 92. Favre is eligible for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2016 class. Once he is enshrined there, his name will be placed in the team’s ring of honor at Lambeau Field.
