Brett Favre Comments on Aaron Rodgers Return to Packers

If anyone knows what Aaron Rodgers was thinking, it’s Brett Favre.

Brett Favre wasn’t shocked to see Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers return to Green Bay, even if that means backing up the Brinks truck in order to keep him.

“It wasn’t much from a surprise perspective,” Favre said during his weekly appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

As Favre sees it, Rodgers returned to Title Town because they provide him with the best chance to add a second Super Bowl ring to his jewelry box.

“I have said this all along and will continue to say this. I assume that Aaron’s objective is to try and get to the Super Bowl,” he continued. “His best chance to get there has been in Green Bay the last two years.”

Favre doesn’t have any insider knowledge direct from his former understudy, but it’s clear that he believes that Rodgers likes the team Green Bay’s assembled around him.

“I haven’t talked to Aaron. I don’t know what his vision is like, but I gotta assume that he is thinking, ‘Hey I got a good thing going on here, so I might as well come back and try my chances,’” added Favre.

“As far as the contract, it’s gotta be close to what they are speculating,” Favre said via SiriusXM. “Is anyone worth that kind of money? Probably not, but it’s the way the market works.”

It was pretty obvious to pretty much everyone Green Bay is the best chance for Rodgers to win another Super Bowl.

If only he could get over his playoff slump.
