With the Packers anxious to begin the Aaron Rodgers era, the talk of Brett Favre's possible comeback may come with another team.

As unfathomable as it to imagine the Green Bay legend playing in another uniform, it is not unprecedented. Many superstars have finished their careers in a different uniform than the one for which they are remembered.
