GREEN BAY, Wisc. (The Journal Sentinel) — The Green Bay Packers and quarterback Brett Favre have mended their fences.

After several years of discussions with Favre, the team has scheduled a joint announcement with the Packers Hall of Fame for 1:30 p.m. Monday. Favre will speak via telephone.

According to a source familiar with the announcement, Favre will go into the Hall of Fame next year, once the new facility is finished inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. The new hall is scheduled to be completed in April, and Favre would go in in July.

The Packers, meanwhile, will announce that they will retire Favre’s No. 4 next season.
