Packers will honor Favre -- eventually
Last summer's messy divorce notwithstanding, Brett Favre's No. 4 will still be retired at Lambeau Field some day.
That's the upshot of a statement released Wednesday by the Green Bay Packers. Here's the full text:
Congratulations to Brett on a remarkable career. The Packers organization wishes him and his family well. Brett always will hold a special place in Green Bay Packers history, and we remain committed to retiring his number at an appropriate time in the future.
The Packers originally planned to retire Favre's number last September, but his return and subsequent trade to the New York Jets changed those plans. I would imagine that no ceremony will be scheduled this time around until it is patently clear that Favre is finished playing.
