Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy has said for over a year now that the team plans to retire Brett Favre's jersey. Apparently that retirement ceremony won't be happening in 2014 though. Murphy said on Thursday that the two sides have a good relationship, but it's unlikely Favre's No. 4 will be retired this year. "I don't anticipate having him retire a number this season, in a game this year," Murphy said, via ESPNWisconsin.com. "We have very good relations, and very good communication, but I don't anticipate that this year." If Murphy's going to stick to his original plan, that pretty much leaves the 2015 season as final chance for the Packers to retire Favre's number. Murphy has said he'd like the ceremony to happen before Favre's inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, something that could happen as soon as 2016. Asked if that was still the timeline, Murphy said, "That's still our hope." One thing that's been holding back a potential retirement ceremony at Lambeau Field is Favre himself. The former Packers quarterback is apparently worried that he would be booed and he doesn't want to be honored if he's going to be booed.
