Brett Favre playing football again -- for charity

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre will be playing football again in Wisconsin -- just not at Lambeau Field.

The former Green Bay Packers quarterback will be participating in a charity flag football game the University of Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium on July 19.

The event pitting former Packers against NFL All-Stars will come a day after Favre is inducted into Packers Hall of Fame during a ceremony at Lambeau.

Organizers and a Packers spokesman say a scheduling conflict at Lambeau and the game's proximity to the start of the NFL season prevented the team game from being held in Green Bay.

So Favre thought the next best place to hold the game would be Madison, which is about a two-hour drive southwest from Lambeau.
