Packers Mull Retiring Favre’s Number, Unretiring it, Retiring It Again
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was revealed today that Green Bay Packers’ brass has been contemplating the option of retiring long-time Packers quarterback Brett Favre’s number and then unretiring it, leaving open the possibility to retire it again.
Favre, a 20-year NFL veteran, spent 16 seasons with the Packers, winning a Superbowl in 1996. The decision to consider the move came at the urging of current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but Green Bay hierarchy has affirmed that they are “just not sure.”
“We certainly want to retire Brett’s number,” GM Ted Thompson said. “But we don’t want to leave out the possibility of brining it back. I think the time has come for the good old number 4 to go out on top, certainly. But if the right opportunity presents itself, we may want to run it back out there again.”
Regardless of the whether or not the Packers maybe retire Favre’s number, plans are in place to erect a shrine to the legendary quarterback outside Lambeau Field, based on grainy images of Favre’s penis.
