ESPN Reports: Favre Tells Pack He's Back!

Late breaking news...ESPN is reporting that QB Brett Favre told the Packers this morning that he is returning to the team this year. Details will be forthcoming.

This is just as predicted here. Whether Brett's return affects how the Packers approach their #5 pick in this weekend's draft, particularly if one of the top 2 QBs is available, we'll have to wait to see. But if we believe GM Ted Thompson, if the team feels one of these QBs is the best player available, the Pack will take a QB with their first round pick. But I wouldn't count on that.

What we can count on is one more -- and one last -- year of #4. Let's enjoy it. We won't see anyone like him come along in a Packers' uniform, or any other, ever again.
