Packers Exec Murphy Expects Favre Reconciliation
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Packers president Mark Murphy says the team still expects to reconcile with former quarterback Brett Favre sometime down the road.
Speaking at the Green Bay’s Super Bowl media day session Tuesday, Murphy says the team will reach out to Favre at the “appropriate time.” It remains unclear just when that might be.
The sentiment isn’t new for the Packers. Murphy has said in the past that he expects the team to eventually repair its relationship with Favre, the former face of the franchise now led by Aaron Rodgers.
Favre had a public falling-out with the team’s front office in 2008, amid yet another round of waffling on his retirement. The Packers traded him to the New York Jets, and he later played two more seasons for the rival Minnesota Vikings.
Murphy said in hindsight, he’s proud of the way the team handled a difficult situation.
