Brett Favre In No Rush To Retire Packers Jersey

Brett Favre, 20 year NFL quarterback veteran, retired as the NFL’s winningest QB and to add to his accomplishments he has the most passing yards and touchdown passes in NFL history. How can you not respect someone who plays through a concussion? With no relationship between the Packers and Favre, and according to ChicagoTribune.com what he told Deion Sanders and NFL network he’s in no rush:

“Not really. I don’t really have one,” Favre told Deion Sanders in an interview with the NFL Network. “It’ll happen someday. That day will come. I haven’t lost any sleep over it, nor have they. … I wish them well.”

The feeling is mutual on the Packers side as well, Packers president Mark Murphy told Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

“The franchise will wait at least another year before holding a ceremony to retire Favre’s No. 4 jersey. Yes, he deserves that for what he did as a Packer,” Murphy said Thursday. “Probably in a year or two. We want to do it at a time that’s meaningful to him.”

Favre went to further mention:

“I don’t know what the future holds,” Favre told NFL Network. “And think I’m crazy, but I don’t need to have a day. I don’t need to have a retirement, retire your jersey, all that stuff – to solidify my career.”

Aside from his improper sexting, the alcohol and wait… oh yes the Vicodin, he’s one of the NFL living histories. Regardless of his off the field antics, you can’t deny that he isn’t one of the NFL’s greatest players and moreso deserves his jersey hung in City Stadium in Green Bay.
