07:02 AM ET 05.15 | At some point soon-ish, Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers will officially reunite. 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. The first sign of goodwill between Favre and the team he led for 15 seasons came in February, when the 43-year-old and his successor in Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers, presented together during the NFL Honors show. "I thought he and Aaron jointly presenting the Comeback Player of the Year Award was a great first step," Murphy said.

Mr. Favre!! Time to bury the hatchet.

If he's coming back to play he ought to be well rested.

He needs a little more time to think about it. He'll come see you at the Waffle House when he's ready.

There are no Waffle Houses in Wisconsin. Could do Chuck E Cheese's.

Ol' Brett's willing to wait until somebody opens one.

You know he wants to come back.

May 15, 2013  08:12 AM ET

Maybe he doesn't.

May 15, 2013  08:12 AM ET

Maybe he does now.

No he doesn't.

I see a lot of waffling going on here.

And it better be the Waffle House, "down the road".

But no more **** pics, please.

I remember Rodgers and Favre at the NFL Awards together. Super awkward.

This is about making sure he goes into the HOF in a Packer uni. Thats all. Perhaps Jenn Sterger can introduce him at the ceremony, she saw more of him than any Packer fan.

Someone call the moderator, you guys are using the "F" word again.

Packers want Favre back in the family ... and "The Family" wants Charles Manson back.
