Former Green Bay Packers president Bob Harlan has a plan to try to get Brett Favre and the Packers to reconcile. He hoping to get Favre to attend Mike Holmgren’s induction into the Packers Hall of Fame.
“We had a meeting about two months ago and talked about who should be invited back — Jon Gruden, Andy Reid, people like that,” said Harlan, per ESPNMilwaukee.com. “And, we talked about players. And I said to the group, ‘What about No. 4? This would be the perfect time for him to come back, come into Green Bay.’
“The crowd at the Hall of Fame banquet is an adoring crowd, they’re as loyal to the Green Bay Packers as anybody.’ And unfortunately, I don’t think he’s going to do it. We did approach his agent (James “Bus” Cook), and I don’t think Brett’s going to do it. I feel badly about that.”
Harlan believes both sides will settle everything at some point, but he believes Favre is still upset about the situation.
“He’s got to come back someday and have his number retired,” Harlan said. “He’s going to go into the Packers Hall of Fame. I think he should go into the Packers Hall of Fame before he goes into Canton. … I just have great respect for him, and somehow, some way, he’s got to come back here.”
I believe that sooner or later Favre will get over the hurt he’s feeling and resolve everything with the Packers.
