GREEN BAY, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  "It's a dream come true ... It's time to come back."

That's what Brett Favre said on the phone this afternoon, when the Green Bay Packers' Hall of Fame announced it would induct the three-time M-V-P quarterback next summer.

Team president Mark Murphy said Favre's Number-Four would be retired at the Hall of Fame banquet next July 18th -- and a ceremony will later be held at a home game in 2015 where his name appear on the north facade at Lambeau. Favre played 16 of his 20 N-F-L seasons with the green-and-gold, winning a Super Bowl in the 1996 season.

Former team president Bob Harlan said that when G-M Ron Wolf, coach Mike Holmgren, and Favre came to town, "Packer pride was restored" after three decades of mostly losing seasons following the departure of Vince Lombardi.

Hall of Fame president Perry Kidder said the vote to elect Favre was unanimous.
