Brett Favre spent 16 years with the Green Bay Packers, leading the team to one Lombardi trophy, two Super Bowl appearances, four NFC championship games and 160 overall victories.
Sure, things came to a messy end when his indecision about retirement led the team to trade him to the New York Jets. And, sure, he ended up leading bitter division rival Minnesota to the NFC championship game a year later.
But in many people's eyes Favre will always be associated with the Packers. And team President and Chief Executive Mark Murphy says the Packers want to take that a step further.
"We want to have [Favre] back in the family," Murphy told FoxSportsWisconsin.com during the team's eighth-annual Tailgate Tour.
The first step toward a possible reconciliation between the Packers and the league's all-time leading passer was a surprise joint appearance with Favre and his successor as Green Bay quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, as presenters at the NFL Honors show back in February.
