Brett Favre will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers HOF and will have jersey retired.
After a 20 year career in the NFL and setting numerous records for the quarterback position, Brett Favre will finally have his No. 4 jersey retired by the team he played 16 seasons for.
The Green Bay Packers will hold a ceremony for the gunslinger in 2015 to induct their Super Bowl winning quarterback into the Packers Hall of Fame and to retire the legendary No. 4 jersey.
Favre’s website posted the following statement…
“I’m pleased to announce that I will be returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of my jersey.
It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers. Now to have my name placed among others such as Starr, Hornung, Kramer, Taylor, Lambeau, Nitschke, Lombardi, Davis, White and Hutson is a special honor that I share with all of my teammates and coaches, and that would not have been possible but for the foresight of Ron Wolf, the greatest GM In the history of the NFL.
I’m truly looking forward to celebrating and sharing this special moment with all of the great fans of the Green Bay Packers.
Favre is a quarterback legend and holds many records that probably won’t be broken for a while.

Number 4 will always be synonymous with Brett Favre. It’s nice to see Brett and the Packers coming back together one last time to recognize their legendary quarterback.
