GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame and have his jersey retired next year.
Favre writes on his official website that it will be an honor to have his name placed among others such Bart Starr, Curly Lambeau, Ray Nitschke and Vince Lombardi, to name a few.
Favre says it wouldn't be possible if not for the foresight of former general manager Ron Wolf, who he says is the greatest GM in the history of the NFL.
The team planned an official announcement Monday afternoon. Favre will join by teleconference.
It's been six years since Favre `retired' from the Packers, tried to return, then went on to play for the New York Jets and rival Minnesota Vikings.
