Murphy: Packers want Favre "back in the family"
Packers President Mark Murphy said the words many Packers fans had been thinking for quite a while: that the team is eyeing, at some point, a reconciliation with retired former quarterback Brett Favre.
Murphy told foxsportswisconsin.com during a Packers Tailgate Tour stop on Tuesday that the franchise would like to have Favre "back in the family."
Favre, one of the most successful quarterbacks in the team's history, had a falling out with the organization in 2008 as the franchise turned to Aaron Rodgers as its starting quarterback. Favre played for the Jets and Vikings before retiring from football.
CBS 58 was at a Packers Tailgate Tour stop in Delavan Wednesday afternoon. Tonight at 10:00 PM, Packers organization members will talk about Favre and about a surprise visit to a group of grateful children at the Wisconsin School for the Deaf.
