Brett Favre Says He Doesn’t See Aaron Rodgers ‘Coming Back’ To The Packers
Brett Favre doesn’t see the Aaron Rodgers taking his talents back to Green Bay.
The former Green Bay legend, who finished his career with the Jets and Vikings, had this to say about the situation.
“I think I know Aaron fairly well, and honestly I just don’t see him coming back and just saying, ‘All right, let’s just bury the hatchet, whatever caused the rift, and I’m just going to come back and play because I love the guys, I love the Green Bay fans’ — I assume he does — but his rift isn’t with the fans or the players,” Favre said on ESPN’s “Wilde & Tausch” radio show, per Fox News. “It’s with the front office. Will he just swallow his pride and come in? Maybe. But I don’t see that happening.”
Favre continued to by saying he thinks Rodgers would rather sit out than play for Green Bay.
“That’s just my gut,” Favre said. “There’s no reason for me to say that other than that’s what my gut is telling me, and I think you guys know Aaron fairly well enough to sort of feel the same way.”
Rodgers reportedly became upset with team general manager Brian Gutekunst following the release of receiver Jake Kumerow after the 2019 season and with the drafting of quarterback Jordan Love in 2020.
Reports state the only way he returns to the team is if the GM is fired.
