Before any rumors about Brett Favre playing football again can get started, let's start out by saying that the future hall of fame quarterback is staying retired and has no plans to play again. However, the Green Bay Packers to plan on bringing him back to Lambaugh in some capacity.

Packers' president and CEO Mark Murphy said that he hopes to have Brett Favre, "back involved in the organization soon."

"We want to have [Favre] back in the family," Murphy reportedly said.

The Green Bay Packers have plans to retire Brett Favre's No. 4 jersey at some point in the future, but they are waiting for the perfect time.

Mark Murphy's comments seemed to hint at bigger plans for Brett Favre than just a jersey retirement ceremony. One has to wonder if the Green Bay Packers are not planning to get Favre involved in management or even some sort of coaching role.

Given the fact that Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers do not have the best relationship, it seems unlikely that Favre would get type of role as a coach. However, Favre could get some sort of front office role.

Then again, Brett Favre has said for many years that he has no interest in getting involved in football after retirement. He enjoys living a secluded life out in the country. Or at least that's what he used to say. It is quite possible that Favre has grown tired of doing nothing nearly every day. If he feels like getting back to work, it would make a ton of sense for him to take a front office job with the team that helped make him as famous as he is today.

We will continue to follow this developing story closely. If and when a jersey retirement ceremony is set, you will hear it first. Likewise, if the Green Bay Packers do offer Brett Favre a job in management, we will be the first to report it.
