Brett Favre still has the itch to play, and he's going to lace them up one more time -- just not in the way you might expect.
The Packers great is scheduled to take part in a charity flag football game that will possibly be hosted at the University of Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium. The event will take place just one day after Favre is inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
The flag football game figures to be a big hit among fans, and Favre's involvement is key to the event. A similar flag football game, featuring Joe Montana playing at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, was held last year. Montana's flag football team beat a team quarterbacked by Dan Marino in a 45-40 shootout.
The Packers had a chance to host the charity event at Lambeau Field, but the organization declined, citing concerns about the stadium's natural-grass turf.
Wisconsin, meanwhile, acknowledged that they are in discussions to host the charity event, but that nothing had been finalized yet:

"Our main goal for Lambeau Field's playing surface is to have it in the best condition possible for the start of the season," said public affairs director Aaron Popkey to ESPN. "The June 20 [Kenny] Chesney-[Jason] Aldean concert will add some challenges to that goal, so we need to prevent any further wear and tear on the field prior to August."
Favre will also be honored at halftime of the Packers-Chicago Bears game on Thanksgiving Day. After years of tension and uncertainty about Favre's relationship with the Packers franchise, the team and its legendary quarterback appear to have mended fences.
