Brett Favre can first gain enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

And some fans are reportedly banking on just that.

Canton hotels have already started to receive reservations from Packers fans, Todd Porter of the Canton Repository reported Sunday. (A hat tip to Judy Battista for NFL.com for pointing this out.)

Favre, who turns 45 in October, last played in an NFL game for Minnesota in 2010. He spent 16 seasons with Green Bay before briefly retiring after the 2007 season.
