GREEN BAY, Wisc. (WFRV) "I'm truly looking forward to celebrating and sharing this special moment with all of the great fans of the Green Bay Packers."

Brett Favre confirmed via his website that he will be returning to Green Bay in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of his jersey.

"It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers," Favre wrote on his website. "Now to have my name placed among others such as Starr, Hornung, Kramer, Taylor, Lambeau, Nitschke, Lombardi, Davis, White and Hutson is a special honor that I share with all of my teammates and coaches, and that would not have been possible but for the foresight of Ron Wolf, the greatest GM In the history of the NFL."
