Almost six years to the day since Brett Favre was traded to the New York Jets, his No. 4 jersey will be retired for the Green Bay Packers and he will be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame (SB Nation, August 4).
Favre played 16 of his 20 NFL seasons with Green Bay before a messy trade to the Jets – but both sides have apparently buried the hatchet. The Packers and Favre are set to announce the news Monday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. ET as he becomes the sixth player to have his jersey retired by Green Bay.
The quarterback isn’t eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame until 2016.
