Brett Favre Does Not Believe Aaron Rodgers Will Retire a Packer


To quote Brandon Kravitz, "Rodgers got 'Rodgers'd" during the NFL Draft. Back in 2005, the Packers took him 24th overall while Brett Favre was still their quarterback. Fast forward to this past weekend and history repeated itself when the Packers traded up to 26 to draft Jordan Love while Rodgers still has some game left. To many, that has started a thought in Rodgers' head that he will not be with Green Bay until the end. The guy he replaced is on board with that thought.

On Wednesday, Favre appeared on 'The Rich Eisen Show' and expressed a feeling that he believed Rodgers would not finish his career in Green Bay, "I think he'll play somewhere else."

Bob McGinn of The Athletic wrote a piece explaining that Rodgers' "passive-aggressive" style has not been welcomed by second-year coach Matt LaFleur, "Public niceties aside, my sense is LaFleur, fresh from a terrific 13-3 baptismal season, simply had enough of Rodgers’ act and wanted to change the narrative. With a first-round talent on the roster, the Packers would gain leverage with their imperial quarterback and his passive-aggressive style. If the Packers do indeed want to become a running team next season, they surely wouldn’t want Rodgers rocking the boat and becoming even more difficult to coach."

It will be difficult to see Aaron Rodgers rocking a jersey that isn't the Packer green but like Favre said, he wouldn't be the first quarterback to put in so much time with one franchise and then retire somewhere else.
