During an interview airing on the NFL Network on Wednesday evening, former Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre discussed the lack of a relationship he has with the Packers organization, including a comment on an potential for an event that’s been discussed for some time. “I don’t need to have a day,” Favre is quoted as saying in an article by Jason Wilde at ESPNMilwaukee.com. “I don’t need to have a retirement [where they] retire your jersey to solidify my career.” Favre’s comment on his jersey being retired was part of a larger response, which can be seen by reading the article. The second part of Favre’s interview with Deion Sanders can be seen Thursday night at 7 p.m. Central time on the NFL Network.
Current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Wednesday while attending the American Century Championship golf tournament. “We’re going to be focused on one goal,” said Rodgers. “Thirty-two teams enter camp with a goal of going to the Super Bowl and winning it. Obviously there’s only two at the end, but that’s going to be the goal every training camp. It’s interesting to see how the team comes together. There’s always a new feel to the team, new guys that step up that you didn’t expect to step up, some guys might not play as well as you expect them to, others might not be with us. So, there’s always going to be changes, going to be some good fights probably during training camp, hopefully fans will enjoy it there in Green Bay.” Nothing too earth-shattering from Rodgers there. Up to this point he’s been taking part in practice rounds on the golf course. The tournament begins Friday and lasts through Sunday.
Former Packers president and current chairman emeritus Bob Harlan talked to Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette about the organization’s relationship with Brett Favre. “He was so important to this organization and contributed so much to the resurrection of this franchise, I’ll never forget that,” said Harlan. “In some way it’s got to be healed. I just don’t know when or how it’s going to happen.” Harlan echoed the same sentiments during an interview on the ESPN Radio affiliate in Milwaukee a few weeks ago.
