Packers to honor Favre at a game this fall

Brett Favre will once again be making an appearance at Lambeau Field this fall.

The Green Bay Packers announced Monday that the former quarterback will be honored with a halftime ceremony to celebrate his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during their Oct. 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys. That ceremony will feature the unveiling of his name on the stadium façade next to the 23 other former Packers enshrined in Canton.

It will be Favre’s third trip to Green Bay since the team and the iconic quarterback mended fences after a nasty divorce in the summer of 2008 that saw Favre traded to the New York Jets and eventually sign with the Minnesota Vikings. Last summer, Favre was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame, and then he returned in November to have his number retired during halftime of the Packers matchup with the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving.

The team also announced that Green Bay will wear their throwback uniforms in the game against the Cowboys. They are the same ones they wore for one game in 2015, and are a re-creation of the uniforms the team wore from 1937 to 1948.

Favre will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 6, with the Packers taking on the Indianapolis Colts the following day in the Hall of Fame Game.
