GRAND CHUTE - Brett Favre's recent interviews perhaps point to a coming reunion with the Green Bay Packers.
Aaron Rodgers has said he wants to see it happen, so has team president Mark Murphy. Several former Packers players who shared the field with Favre see a reunion as just around the corner.
"It's like a marriage," said former Packers wide receiver Donald Driver. "When you're in that marriage, you get divorced, you have a mean side on both sides, then it all seems to come together a couple years from now. I think it'll all work out. He'll sooner or later walk in that stadium."
Driver invited several retired Packers to play in his annual charity softball game at Fox Cities Stadium. Packers Hall of Famer William Henderson hopes Favre is back in the fold soon.
"I believe that reunion should happen tomorrow," said Henderson, who lined up at fullback on Favre-led teams. "It's time. We need to welcome my big brother, my quarterback. I played with both Aaron and Brett, but the day he decides to fly back in will be a day I'm running back here to make sure I welcome him in."
With the Packers' all-time leading receiver running the show in Driver, the team's all-time leading rusher also said he thinks the guy who handed him the ball so many times will make peace with Green Bay.
"Once a player makes up his mind to do or don't do something, then we'll hear about it," said retired Packers running back Ahman Green. "Once that bridge gets here, everybody will be happy. I know he'll be happy. It'll be laid to rest, it'll be a good day."
Driver said he won't lobby anyone in the Packers' front office to make a move regarding Favre. There's only one ingredient, Driver says, needed for a reunion.
"It just takes time," said Driver. "It takes time to heal wounds, his wounds are healing; they're just healing a little slower than most people would."
