Packers to Retire Reggie White's Number

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -

"A lot of guys here didn't get a chance to play with Reggie or even get to know Reggie," said center Mike Flanagan, one of a handful of Packers who played with White in the 1990s. "So, he just wanted to let some guys know what Reggie White meant to this organization, what he meant to the NFL and what he meant to this planet as a human being."
Brett Favre said White's words of wisdom live on in all who were ever touched by the "Minister of Defense."

"One of the best things to happen to me in my career was having an opportunity to play with Reggie White," Favre said Thursday. "And I think the way I handle myself today, the fun I try to bring to this team and the intensity I try to bring, not only in games but in practices, meetings and things like that is from Reggie White. No doubt about it. What a great player. And it's a great honor to say I played with Reggie White."
