The Green Bay Packers and legendary future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre could be burying the hatchet for good this upcoming season as a rumored reunion between the team is continuing to gain steam. While Favre returning to the Packers has been a goal for fans since he left in 2008, the bad blood between Favre and Ted Thompson as soiled some truly great memories.
But the dung tossing fest seems to be over and the boiling blood on both sides has simmered down enough that a reunion could happen as soon as this season. According to ESPN blogger Rob Demovsky, his guess is that a full-on ‘Ring of Honor’ style reunion won’t come in 2014 but baby steps towards that seems entirely possible.
The guess here is that they might first bring him back for a game – perhaps even for alumni weekend – as a way of reintroducing him to the Packers’ fans before retiring his number at a later date.
It’s a foregone conclusion that Favre’s No. 4 jersey will be retired by the Packers as they’ve not allowed anyone to wear it even with the feuding that has been going on. Everyone can see a reunion on the horizon and both Favre and the Packers will be better off once officially on good terms and when that happens there’s good chance we see Favre returning to Lambeau Field become a regular occasion.
