The Green Bay Packers will wait at least another season to hold a ceremony to retire Brett Favre’s No. 4.

Packers president Mark Murphy said the team will wait “probably in a year or two,” according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Favre led the Packers to two Super Bowl appearances and one title in 16 seasons before ending his career with stops with the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings.

“Yes, he deserves that for what he did as a Packer,” said Murphy. “Probably in a year or two. We want to do it at a time that’s meaningful to him.”
