Woodson: Favre Had Numerous Opportunities To Reach Out
Green Bay Packers cornerback [intlink id=”143″ type=”category”]Charles Woodson[/intlink] was on Jim Rome’s show today and, of course, [intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink] somehow managed to work his way into the conversation.
Rome asked Woodson about Favre’s relationship with [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] — Rodgers reportedly still harbors some bitterness toward Favre — and about the possibility of Favre reaching out to his former understudy.
“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.”
As initially reported, Favre is afraid reaching out to Rodgers will make him look manipulative or like he’s grandstanding. There’s a question as to whether Rodgers would even take Favre’s call.
I’m sure the conversation will happen eventually, but Woodson makes a good point. Favre has had plenty of time to reach out to Rodgers, but he hasn’t done it, just like he hasn’t bothered to reach out to Packers fans.
If Favre were a man, he would have done both already, but knowing the Brett Favre we all grew to hate over the past three years, he’ll probably just sit back, pretend there’s no animosity and hope time takes care of things for him.
