According to ESPN reports, the Green Bay Packers are expected to announce today that former player Brett Favre will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame in the summer of 2015.

His No. 4 jersey that he wore from 1992-2008 will also be retired.

"It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers," Favre said in a statement. "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," Favre said in the statement.
