The reports this week that Brett Favre wants to bury the hatchet with Aaron Rodgers has one player who’s been teammates with both of them wondering what took Favre so long.
Charles Woodson said today on ESPN’s Jim Rome Is Burning that if Favre wants to reach out, that’s fine. But Rodgers should get to savor his status as the reigning Super Bowl Most Valuable Player without any Favre-related distractions.
“This deal with Brett, I’m not sure what that’s all about,” Woodson said. “I know he’s had numerous opportunities to reach out. Why now? I don’t know. But for A-Rod, he doesn’t have to do anything. He’s a champion, he needs to enjoy this moment and not even worry about all that.”
One Packers player told Mike Freeman of CBS that he thinks the bitterness between Rodgers and Favre runs deep enough that if Favre did call, Rodgers might not answer. Woodson said he thinks Rodgers would talk to Favre, although he’s not sure it would be the friendliest of conversations.
“I don’t know the extent of what their relationship was,” Woodson said. “If Brett called him, he’d probably take the call. What’s said? I don’t know.”
None of us knows what would be said between Favre and Rodgers at this point. But we’d all like to hear it.
