Just like you can't keep Brett Favre out of the news forever, you can't keep him from always doing the thing that benefits one guy -- Favre -- over all else.

 

That's how it's possible that two years after he played his final game -- for the Vikings, you'll recall -- Favre periodically pops up in the news with the notion that he and his old team, the Packers, might some day bury the hatchet.

Now, you know us -- Favre will (wink, wink) always be a Viking in the hearts of many.

But if that's what Brett and the Packers want, we suppose that's what they're going to get. This time, per Fox Sports Wisconsin:

It won't be long until Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers are officially reunited in some way.

Nearly five years after the Packers traded a disgruntled Favre to the New York Jets, the franchise is getting ready to reach back out to the now-retired quarterback.

"We want to have (Favre) back in the family," Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy told FOXSportsWisconsin.com during the team's eighth-annual Tailgate Tour.

If that, indeed, happens, these folks are going to have an interesting time of it. Do they forgive and forget?
