In a podcast interview with ESPN's Mike Tirico, Favre reminisced about his time in Green Bay and cracked the door open for a reunion with the team he represented so well from 1992 to 2007.
"You look at Lambeau Field and where that place has gone and how it's evolved, I can't help but feel a sense of being a part of that," Favre said, via ESPN Milwaukee. "And so, even though it's a shame the way things went down between I and the Packers, as time goes by, you just kind of, it's kind of like a grudge, you just kind of get over it."
Tirico asked Favre if he believes he'll eventually return to Lambeau to have his No. 4 retired by the Packers.
"I know that day (will come)," Favre said. "How that will unfold, I have no idea when that will happen. I don't think their side is thinking about it. They're trying to figure out how to get back to the Super Bowl, and really I've got my plate full. I think that's good for both sides, not that we don't need to shake hands and move on. I think in some ways that has happened, but you know, I do see the day, it's going to happen. When? I have no idea."
The break-up was messy, no doubt. But time already is taking care of those wounds.
