-- Brett Favre is back in Green Bay, Wisconsin a quarterback -- report the Packers training camp and is now officially reinstated as a member of the team but what does that mean for his future.
-- onetime backup Aaron Rodgers is supposed to be taken the starting position starting September 8 the first game of the season.
But -- ever play as a backup to Rodgers Brett went on the record with a supposed exactly how I feel is about -- -- back.
I know you -- decisions but is it.
The Green Bay an option and be the backup quarterback.
At this point going back -- then back before.
What about competing for starting quarterback why.
I'm just asking.
I'm just asking that debt that's put us in -- over it you retired you know me.
Allowing them to trade used so they get something return.
If I'm gonna employ.
Mean obviously I would have to agree to.
Whoever it is and I'm sure you know.
They're not going to do it with -- big rival or competitor or whatever.
That -- their only option I don't know what else to do.
To us live is fox sports Chris -- welcome back Chris and be -- -- tonight we were expecting a press conference at Lambeau Field.
And it got canceled.
-- -- -- going on behind the scenes any thought.
Well at the meeting though lasted no longer than I think everybody thought and I I don't Brett Favre Greta went into the meeting upset because we did.
Are there any day let me just say there's a meeting before the press conference a press conference didn't have to wait what's this meeting about right.
The meeting was Mike McCarthy primarily with Brett -- that was that the meeting we we we -- have guessed that the Packers were discussing what to do with Brett Favre -- -- open up the competition Aaron Rodgers is their -- -- Your comments from -- are very clear he wants to play.
And he doesn't want to be forced into retirement he did they thought he would take that money settlement.
That you know retirement package which by the way would help them keep the merchandise of his jerseys.
India in the packer organization for NFL properties if he goes to another team they they would lose some of that reportedly but I know Brett went into the -- upset because when he arrived in Green Bay.
He wasn't given the office of -- one -- -- look at those and certain people that usually talk to Brett -- didn't really talk to Brett he wasn't allowed really the access that he normally would get.
Until today as there's kind of kept out of the picture so he went in very very upset and I don't know that he trusts.
Many people now in the packer organization or many of the front office people.
I I didn't give me a couple scenarios suppose -- that then make in the back -- quarterback and supposedly in good although he's been.
-- they -- a -- -- it would do that he has the starting.
According -- the starting game record of 275.
Which is -- -- cal Ripken of baseball.
When the Packers ever.
You know destroy their own record.
-- I don't think Ted Thompson who's running the show enough Mark Murphy of the the president who's on sets aside in this I don't think they're really care about the record I think they felt -- retired we've moved on even if he wants on retire.
We don't want them and yet they don't want anyone else to have them primarily the Minnesota Vikings and I don't think Brett -- -- -- -- back up under these circumstances.
The end be in Green Bay grand ideas I just think he's again -- -- and I don't think he would quit either because now he's been backed into a corner and we know it's not about the money.
I would look at some video that was said Brett Favre his wife Deanna arriving in Green Bay at the airfield.
Right now on this show -- -- got -- coach dungy.
Both said that they thought he was starting quarterback material still -- at 38 year old man now there was one -- -- -- did say though because he retired they create all sorts of management issues but just out of -- basis of whether whether he can still do -- how does that factor into because they must they must recognizes talent.
Yes yes I mean I think he could play somewhere but -- but this may be part of the of the of the -- strategy is the more we get into a year teams move forward with their quarterbacks he's clearly one of the top.
Ten quarterback still active as long as Brett is committed to at least a season or two and and you know the Packers have been grooming Aaron Rodgers threw for this position but it looks like now the only team Brett really would want to play -- from what we hear is Minnesota.
The vikings and so what trade value is there really and that's a team in the division so we've heard anywhere from a third or fourth round pick.
If that's the option that the Packers decided over the bottom line right up.
Ted Thompson is very clear he doesn't want Brett Favre to play or to take the field in this scenario because you'll get majority had.
Sunday night some fans booing Aaron Rodgers and affecting his forward progress.
Even worse than that you like the -- is September 8 as the opening game at Lambeau Field and less -- they -- -- -- a purple uniform because they're also so it's supposed to be retiring his Jersey the Packers course knowledge reinstated retirement won't happen that won't happen at well -- -- isn't treating christened that you allow continue to watch this as well everybody else.
Well I think the fact of the Packers brought in Ari Fleischer is a consultant what what's next -- -- -- I forgot that's not it I I forgot that I know that.
The white house Press Secretary White House.
But then I Fleischer is now doing crisis control for the Green Bay packer management.
-- -- the plot thickens.
Yes that was -- but I don't you'll be on top -- in -- anyway.
It's intriguing story Chris thank you.
All right in the -- -- play somewhere we think but I think so too lilies and -- CS thank here's a look at what's.
