Video Transcript

MINTY BETS: Now Aaron Rodgers isn't the only quarterback at odds with his team. Deshaun Watson is also in the same boat. What do you think about Deshaun Watson's decision to be traded?

BRETT FAVRE: Yeah, well you know what, it's different, different day and time. You know it's not that long ago in some respects but another just light years ago when I entered the league and it was almost unheard of for a player to demand basically anything. John Elway did it when he said he would not go play with I think it was Baltimore or the Indianapolis Colts at the time. Said he would go play Major League Baseball until you know something happened and he ended up going to Denver.

But other than that, I really don't remember, maybe Philip Rivers and Eli's situation where one said he wouldn't play here and one ended up there and the other one ended up I guess where he wanted to. I'm kind of old school. I think you know, you play, you get paid a ton of money to do a certain job, and just do it, and let the chips fall where they may. I think we make too much money to voice an opinion, but I'm not saying he's wrong. Again I think it's a different day and time, and it'll be interesting to see how the organization handles it.
