Brett Favre Day at Lambeau Field is going to happen. Fans of the Ol' Gunslinger will just have to be a little more patient.
Schein: NFL's best QB/coach combo
"We're definitely going to retire his number. I really feel strongly that he deserves it. (But) the timing has to be right."
Murphy was vague about the hold-up, explaining that he couldn't say "exactly what time might be right."
Favre was a legendary player over 16 seasons with the Packers, but relations between the two sides became strained as the quarterback waffled over retirement late in his career. He was eventually traded to the New York Jets to make room for Aaron Rodgers. Favre later signed with the Minnesota Vikings, one of the Packers' chief rivals. It was awkward.
Favre's appearance with Rodgers on stage at "NFL Honors" in February broke the ice, and now the two sides appear destined for a reunion. Just not this year.
