Brett Favre: Could The Green Bay Packers Sign Brett Favre For One Day?
Would Brett Favre And The Green Bay Packers Be Interested In A One Day Contract To Retire A Packer?
The Green Bay Packers have had a tremendous year. They just won their fourth Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers is the next big star at quarterback.
Meanwhile, Brett Favre had a forgettable year with Minnesota. He struggled to find any kind of consistency this year, and he missed games due to injury for the first time since 1991.
It looks like Favre has finally reached the end of the road. He is talking about going home and having no regrets. This could be the first time that people actually take his retirement threat seriously.
Would the Packers entertain the notion of signing Favre to a one day contract so that he retires as a member of the franchise that made him a star?
It's happened before with other notable players like Jerry Rice, who signed a one day contract with the 49ers before retiring in 2005.
However, in this case it would seem to be a long shot.
Favre left the team on very bad terms. He felt like he was kicked out because GM Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy wanted to move on from him after he retired and un-retired (again) in 2008.
Thompson and McCarthy were tired of the shenanigans and feeling like Favre was holding the franchise hostage with his indecisive nature.
In the years since Favre left there hasn't been any indication that he or the Packers front office have tried to bury the hatchet. Even though he should have retired as a member of the Packers it doesn't appear that will happen.
Not that it matters because when he goes into the hall of fame it will be because of his sixteen years as a Green Bay Packer.
For the record there hasn't been any talk of the one day contract between Favre and the team, it's just a question that I wanted to analyze since I have seen it happen before.
