Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre's No. 4 jersey won't be retired by the team in 2014, per multiple sources.

Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre's No. 4 jersey won't be retired by the team in 2014.

This was what Packers team president Mark Murphy told The Green Bay Post-Gazette on July 10: 

"The Green Bay Packers don't expect to retire legendary quarterback Brett Favre's No. 4 this year, team president Mark Murphy said Thursday.

"I don't anticipate having him retire a number this season, in a game this year,' Murphy told a group of reporters. 'We have very good communication, but I don't anticipate that this year.'

"One concern expressed by Murphy is that Favre would get booed by Packers fans at Lambeau Field.

"'That is an issue,' Murphy said. 'He doesn't want it, and neither do we. He wouldn't want to come back and get booed. You can't control 80,750 people. 

"'I really think as time goes on, every year that passes, it's less likely that he would get booed, but that is an issue.' 

"Favre played 16 seasons with the Packers before getting traded to the New York Jets in 2008. He played one season with the Jets before signing with division rival Minnesota (Vikings) in 2009, sparking anger among many Packers fans. 

"Favre was booed loudly at Lambeau Field when he returned with the Vikings to play the Packers in teh fall of 2009.

"Relations between Favre and the Packers have improved since the quarterback's retirement from the Vikings following the 2010 season. Murphy said he repeatedly that he would like the Packers to retire Favre's number before his expected induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

"When asked Thursday if the expects the Packers to retire Favre's number in 2015, Murphy said:'Hopefully. That's our hope.'

"During an interview with Sirius XM Radio last month, Favre expressed a desire to eventually return to Green Bay to be honored.

"'It's going to happen, I'll be back up there,' Favre said. 'Again, my career in Green Bay, I wouldnt' trade it for anything. It was awesome. The people were awesome, and I just think everything's going to be fine and in my opinion it is now. It's just a matter of getting back up there.'"

NFL.com's Chris Wesseling recounts the example of Favre's former teammate Ryan Longwell, who left the Packers for the Vikings: 

"Favre's good friend and former Packers kicker Ryan Longwell was booed upon signing a ceremonial one-year contract at Lambeau last season.

"His transgression? Per (ESPN Wisconsin's Jason) Wilde, it was leaving Green Bay for Minnesota and joking that the Twin Cities have better restaurant options. 

"Former Packers tight end Mark Chmura, another friend of Favre's, confirmed on his radio show last month that Favre was indeed reluctant to return for fear of getting booed.

"It shouldn't be much longer until the hard feelings toward Favre fade away.

"He has conceded that he was at fault for the 'bad blood' that developed in the aftermath of his controversial breakup with the organization.

 

"Aaron Rodgers also has called on the team to retire Favre's number and welcome the legend back into the Packers' family.

"If it doesn't happen this season, Favre will likel have a bust in Canton before his number is retired in Green Bay." 

Favre amassed 71,838 passing yards, 508 touchdowns and 336 touchdowns 302 career regular-season games in his 20-year NFL career, per ESPN stats
