Packers to honor Favre at Lambeau again

Associated Press
Quarterback Brett Favre, who left Green Bay on bad terms, will return to Lambeau Field in 2015 to be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame and have his No. 4 jersey retired by the team.

Green Bay, Wis. — Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre plans to make another special trip back to Lambeau Field.

The team announced Monday that Favre will appear at a halftime ceremony of Green Bay’s game on Oct.16 against Dallas. The ceremony will honor Favre’s induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which will take place on Aug. 6 in Canton, Ohio.

Favre and the organization have mended their relationship following the quarterback’s bitter departure in 2008 stemming from questions about whether he would retire.

He returned to Green Bay last Thanksgiving, when the team unveiled his retired No. 4 on the Lambeau facade.

In the October ceremony, Favre’s name will be unveiled on the stadium facade alongside other former Packers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
