Super Bowl: Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers, together again (one day)

By Cindy Boren

With the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl and Brett Favre presumably in retirement in Mississippi, a reunion of the two may not be too far distant.

"Yeah, at the appropriate time, we'll reach out to him," Packers President Mark Murphy told USA Today. "And I envision he'll come back into the fold."

When it opted to go with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the team traded Favre to the New York Jets in 2008. Even though Favre played for the division rival Minnesota Vikings for two seasons after that, Murphy said there is sentiment to restore his standing in Green Bay even though there has been no movement yet.

"Yeah, we want to make sure it's the right time for him," Murphy said.

At media day, Donald Driver was asked about Favre. "I think they made the right decision. I think you get to a point in your career where things have to be changed. People have to move on," Driver said. "I didn't think it was going to happen, but things are meant to be. Look where we are now. That was the benefit. The benefit is that we're in the Super Bowl, we're in the Super Bowl once again. This is my first one, but you've got to embrace this moment. ... The good part is I played with two great quarterbacks and one got me to the Super Bowl."
