The Green Bay Packers won't have to wait until the start of free agency again to learn the future of their star quarterback.

Future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre has decided to return to the team in 2007 and told team brass of his decision earlier today, sources close to Favre told FOXSports.com.

Favre himself ascertained as much in an interview with the Biloxi Sun Herald.

"I am so excited about coming back," Favre told the newspaper. "We have a good nucleus of young players. We were 8-8 last year and that's encouraging."

Favre is down in his home state of Mississippi and has had multiple talks with team officials this off-season. Unlike last year, when Favre allowed his decision to linger through rumor upon rumor, this year he's being much more team-friendly in letting his teammates know his deal.

Last year's mess started at the Super Bowl with wideout Donald Driver telling radio stations Favre was going to retire. Then, a rumor ran rampant that Favre would announce his retirement at a golf tournament, only to have a non-announcement rain on the gathered media's parade.

It is unclear when Favre or the team will make an official announcement about the decision.

Following the Packers' season finale against the Bears on New Year's Eve, Favre uncharacteristically become very emotional on national TV in an interview with NBC's Andrea Kreamer. After posing for a photo with his offensive line, Favre had difficulties getting through his answers and at the time it certainly seemed as if he had played his last game.

"It's tough. It's tough," Favre said in that interview. "I'm going to miss these guys and miss the game. Just wanted to let them know that. I wasn't planning on doing this, either."

However, something must have changed his mind since then.

During this past season head coach Mike McCarthy tried to convince Favre to return, as the new head coach felt the living legend was part of the solution, not the problem. The team went as far as giving Favre an office in their facility to get his work done.

Late last season Favre seemed pleased with the direction of the team, especially the growth of some younger players. Unlike the previous season when the quarterback didn't know what much of his personnel will be, that question is now taken out of the equation. Green Bay had a much better season than many prognosticators predicted and the team was even in the playoff hunt late into the season.

I think Favre has a better chance of coming back and playing at a high level than Trent does...

One thing would be for sure, we'd never see Madden's face again. Maybe the back of his head on occasion, but never his face...

Unfortinately you are probably right. But thats just because Trent is permanently retarted.

You know.......all the Packers would have to do if they want to get rid of Brett is trade for Jordan Black. One trip down ole I-65, and Brett will be singing the blues........

Tynes, Black and Dante Hall for AJ Hawk.

Sounds about right. :toast:

Guy should've been permanently benched 2 years ago. Regardless of how many superbowls he's won or who he is or how good he looks scrambling around and throwing sidearm passes or whatever you can't throw as many INTs as he does and expect your football team to be worth a shit.

He's great for the integrity of the game. He's been one of my favorites players for a long time because he's a ****in warrior out on the field.

not so much slobber, but it'll be good not to hear Madden's voice anymore as he'll be under the desk blowing Brett the whole time

If memory serves me right, Favre has beat every team but 2. The Chiefs and the Packers. Don't we play them this coming year also. So he gets one last chance to beat the Chiefs.

False information. He has beaten the Packers on more than one occasion.

He is my favorite current player. I am glad he is coming back too. It would be awesome if he could play two more years. Put the records where Mangina can't reach them.

Now he will pull a Rickey Williams and choose to retire 2 months after the draft and leave them in a real mess.

No shit.

One day, Favre will retire and Madden will die. On both counts, hopefully sooner rather than later. :grr:

Good for Favre. It's actually the best for the Packers. Green Bay would be screwed if they relied on Rodgers, who sucked in the first place and then had a season ending injury on top of that. The Pack have a chance to mop up the floor in that weak ass NFCN and make a decent playoff run.

Bretts arm is still top 5 in the league, its his decision making that has taken a wrong turn without a strong willed Holmgren around to jump his case about it.

I'm glad he's coming back, as much as the constant drone about him gets old, its only because he actually deserves it. If they can put some talent around him & McCarthy can grow a pair & confront Brett about his dumb chucks the Pack could take the NFCN in 07.

For me, the guy is what football is all about.

As a Chicago Bears fan I am all for Brett Favre playing. Even tho he ripped apart our defense for many years, I have the utmost respect for him. Great player and a great guy. I can't wait until he breaks the record.
