Brett Favre weighs in on the Rodgers-Packers standoff

It’s no secret that Aaron Rodgers is discontent in Wisconsin, at least as per the latest reports. The reigning NFL MVP is the subject of multiple rumors linking him with a move away from the NFC and the Green Bay Packers in 2021.

But GM Brian Gutekunst has publicly assured the Packers’ fanbase that their star man will not be traded this summer.

However, Green Bay legend and the man who mentored Rodgers during his early NFL days, Brett Favre, warned the people in Wisconsin, that if Rodgers makes up his mind to leave, there’d be no stopping him.

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

“I don’t see him coming back if this is not resolved, whatever the issue is. Even if it’s resolved but he feels like they have one up on him, he ain’t going to play. Knowing Aaron, he would sit,” Favre said via WISN-TV in Milwaukee.

The Broncos boast of a strong offensive roster including the likes of Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy. Noah Fant, Melvin Gordon, Albert O, and even KJ Hamler. The addition of Rodgers may help take this team to new heights in the coming months.

In addition to that, a defense featuring Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Kyle Fuller, and Justin Simmons puts the Broncos in a strong position to make a Super Bowl return. They’ve also brought in the highly rated Alabama CB Patrick Surtain II in the 2021 NFL Draft.
