Brett Favre is one of the players most closely associated with the Green Bay Packers. The only problem is that he hasn’t really been a part of the storied organization since being traded away in 2008. The Favre-Packers relationship ended poorly, with both sides shouldering some of the blame.
Of course Favre threw gasoline on the fire by signing with the Minnesota Vikings in 2009. Ever since, he’s been away from Lambeau and far from being a Packer.
But it appears that after six long years, a reunion is finally in the works. There have been talks of a ‘bury the hatchet’ type of appearance for quite some time now, and according to the iconic QB, the long-awaited reunion could take place this season.
“Again, time heals a lot of things. In fact, I had planned on going up to a game the latter part of the season last year, but my high school team played into December and it just was a conflict. But the relationship is much better — it’s going to happen, I’ll be back up there. Again my career in Green Bay, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It was awesome. The people were awesome, and I just think everything’s going to be fine and in my opinion it is now. It’s just a matter of getting back up there,” Favre said via SiriusXM Radio.
The time is now for this ‘make up’ to happen. It’s been many years and both sides would benefit from moving on. It’s not exactly an elephant in the room, but there’s just something not right about Favre and the Packers being at odds. His No. 4 jersey needs to be retired, and he needs to take his rightful place in the team’s Hall of Fame.
Once all that happens, you know that both sides will feel a sense of relief.
