Aaron Rodgers is a stubborn one

During the “Bolling with Favre” podcast, the former Packers QB said that by going by how he knows Aaron Rodgers, it’s unlikely the QB is going to budge from his stance.

“Knowing Aaron, and I think I know him fairly well. If he has a grudge, whether it be against the organization or a player, arch-rival, family, or friends, he ain’t budging,” said Favre.

“I don’t see him coming back and saying — if this is not resolved, however, whatever the issue is — if it’s not resolved, or even if it’s resolved but he feels like they have one up on him, he ain’t gonna play.”

Favre said that he expects Aaron Rodgers to sit out and not worry about losing out on his contract money.  

“Knowing Aaron, he would sit. Now, he would forego a lot of money, but he’s also got a lot of money.”

Favre said that given their relationship, the two have indeed talked about the situation. “Aaron and I have a great relationship, and we talked about it,” Favre said. “Obviously, he’s a little disappointed.”
