San Francisco — Brett Favre, the devil-may-care quarterback regarded by some experts as the greatest of all Green Bay Packers, was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

The 46-member selection committee gave Favre the required 80% approval rating to become a so-called "first-ballot" Hall of Famer. Favre will receive his yellow jacket during enshrinement weekend Aug. 4-7 in Canton, Ohio.

"It's an incredible honor, it really is," Favre said. "I'm well aware of my career and what I've done. I'm extremely thankful I'm part of the group, but I don't feel like it."

Favre played like an untamed colt during his early seasons, thrilling Packers fans one moment and driving them batty the next.

"My first 10 years was really athletic ability overcoming lack of football knowledge," said Favre. "I'm just thankful I was able to play 20 years. There were plenty of times I could have and maybe should have failed."

In comments distributed by the Packers, general manager Ted Thompson and former team president Bob Harlan remembered and congratulated Favre.

"He is a once in a generation type of player," said Thompson. "This is a well-deserved honor and a great day for football."

Said Harlan: "Brett gave us 16 wonderful years of exciting, winning football. Every Sunday he was ready to give everything he had for the franchise."

Linebacker Kevin Greene, the Packers' linebackers coach from 2009-'13, was among seven others that were inducted during a selection meeting that lasted 8 hours 49 minutes Saturday.
