With reports of Brett Favre planning to send a letter within the next week or so seeking to be placed on the Green Bay Packers' active roster, there has been much discussion and speculation about whether Favre wants to play for the team he has quarterbacked since 1992, and vice-versa.
One factor that has been omitted is whether Favre's teammates would welcome him back.
According to Profootballtalk.com, the answer is a resounding "hell yes."
So if Favre returns to the Packers, what will happen with Aaron Rodgers? He is signed through 2009 at manageable salaries of $680,000 and $800,000 over the next two seasons, respectively, under a contract that includes escalators based on playing time. He could demand a trade. Possible suitors (as we see it) would include the Buccaneers, the Seahawks, the 49ers (who considered taking him instead of Alex Smith with the No. 1 overall pick in 2005), and any of the three NFC North rivals whose depth charts at the position would be upgraded instantly with the arrival of Rodgers.
