Brett Favre can first gain enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
And some fans are reportedly banking on just that.
Favre, who turns 45 in October, last played in an NFL game for Minnesota in 2010. He spent 16 seasons with Green Bay before briefly retiring after the 2007 season.
If Favre would have stood pat with that decision, he may well have made his Hall of Fame speech as a member of the Class of 2013. Alas, Favre went on to play three more seasons, two with the Vikings, the Packers’ longtime rivals.
Indeed, his could be a memorable Hall speech.
