Quarterback Brett Favre was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and had his No. 4 retired on Saturday in the Lambeau Field Atrium in Green Bay, Wis.

The 45-year-old Favre played for the Packers from 1992-2007 and led Green Bay to a 35-21 victory over the New England in Super Bowl XXXI at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans at the end of the 1996 season.

Favre also played for the Atlanta Falcons (1991), New York (2008) and Minnesota Vikings (2009-2010).

“When you look back and talk about my career, it will be from a Packers standpoint,” said Favre, who was selected the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1995, 1996 and 1997, and was selected to 11 Pro Bowls.

“You almost forget that I played for other teams.”

Favre holds NFL records for passing yards (71,838), passes attempted (10,169), pass completions (6,300), interceptions (336), starts (298) and victories as a starting quarterback (186).
