Brett Favre is doing his part to ingratiate himself to the Green Bay Packer faithful, so that he can be welcomed back with open arms.
Favre was on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday, and praised his predecessor Aaron Rodgers, saying that the highest paid player in the NFL would shatter all of his records.
“Aaron has played extremely well, probably even better than anyone anticipated, but I knew he was capable of that and that’s why they drafted him,” Favre said. “Barring any injury he’ll shatter everything I ever did there except for maybe consecutive games. But the guy has been tremendous, great move on their part.”
Favre also addressed the perception that he and Rodgers didn’t get along while they were teammates in Green Bay.
“There were no problems between Aaron and I,” Favre said. “I had no problem with him becoming the next quarterback for the Packers. It was bound to happen at some point. I have no problems with the success that he’s had. In fact, I’m proud of him.”
