AP , MIAMI, FLORIDA AND GREEN BAY

Packers general manager Ted Thompson confirmed Favre had told the team he plans to return.

"The Packers are excited by his decision and look forward to a suc-cessful 2007 campaign," Thompson said in a statement.

"My offensive line looks good, the defense played good down the stretch," Favre told the Herald. "I'm excited about playing for a talented young football team."

The news came as a surprise to Packers CEO Bob Harlan.

"I hadn't heard it and I hadn't seen the Biloxi paper _ not that I read the Biloxi paper every day," Harlan said on Friday.
