Brett Favre inducted into Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame

Retired quarterback Brett Favre accepts his entrance to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in front of a capacity crowd at Lambeau Field.

Legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre has been inducted into the team's Hall of Fame.

The Super Bowl winner and 11-time Pro Bowl attendee was honoured in front of a packed-out Lambeau Field crowd on Saturday, where he gave a speech and reflected on his 20-year playing career, which ended in 2010.

Favre was Green Bay's first-choice quarterback until 2007, before he spent three seasons with the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings.

Speaking in the stadium, Favre said: "Playing at Lambeau Field, running out of the tunnel, throwing a touchdown here, there's nothing like it on the Earth.

"Believe me, I have played elsewhere, but there is absolutely nothing like this place. Where else can you can get this many people in a stadium when there's not a game?

"I'm extremely honored and that's probably an understatement. By the end of the night, I think we're probably all going to be tired of hearing Brett Favre stories."

Favre threw over 500 touchdowns in his professional career, and led the Packers to Super Bowl victory in 1997.
