Packers | Team not open to Favre competing for job

Chris Mortensen, of ESPN, reports Green Bay Packers retired QB Brett Favre said team general manager Ted Thompson was not receptive to the notion that Favre compete for the starting quarterback job in training camp. "I said, 'Let me compete, you'll know I'll win this job' and Ted said again, 'Brett, things have changed. Aaron Rodgers is our quarterback.' It's pretty clear - and this is what I told the commissioner - that they want me to go away, stay retired. They would much rather see me in a Packers' uniform, paying me $12 million to be a backup - which you know they really don't want - rather than see me in another uniform, no matter what they say. They'll drag this out, asking a king's ransom (in a trade), hoping it all goes away."
