Former Packers Executive Uses Brett Favre Comment To Sum Up Situation With Aaron Rodgers Demanding Trade
Much like Brett Favre threateend to do way back when, Aaron Rodgers finds himself in a similar situation with the Packers drafting his replacement and now he’s demanding a trade and threatening to retire if he doesn’t get what he wants.
A former Packers executive shared a telling comment from Brett Favre that pretty much sums up the situation on Aaron Rodgers.
“As Brett Favre’s camp used to ask me all the time: ‘Do you know what it’s like to come into work every day and sit with your replacement?’ I’m sure Aaron feels similarly, circle of life. Aaron is the MVP of the NFL and a placeholder for Jordan Love at the same time,” Andrew Brandt tweeted.
LaFleur, who has enjoyed a ton of success with Rodgers during his first two seasons as the coach of the Packers, says he “can’t fathom” the quarterback not being in Green Bay.
“I can’t even take my brain to that spot right now,” LaFleur said after the final round of the 2021 NFL Draft via ESPN. “So I just want to do everything in my power to ensure that doesn’t happen.”
LaFleur said: “I don’t only love the player, but I love the person.”
According to Yahoo Sports, the main point of contention involves the Packers selecting quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 draft without informing Rodgers.
He also reportedly wants the GM gone and is threatening to retire.
Additionally, the NFL Network reported, “unless the situation is repaired to his liking, this is a serious consideration.”
