Reports: Packers to let Favre battle to start

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and ESPN's Wendy Nix both report that Brett Favre will compete with Aaron Rodgers to start in training camp.

Despite saying they've "moved on" throughout the summer, the Packers' reported plan is to open the job for competition. It will be a circus, but it makes the most football sense for Green Bay at this point. Practice snaps will be split between Favre and Rodgers. The Packers have reportedly also dropped their $20 million marketing offer for Favre to stay retired. Rodgers will almost certainly run the first team on Monday, but it would be a big upset if Favre isn't starting on Week 1. A trade still seems possible, but go ahead and take Rodgers off your sleeper list.

Eh I'm sure he's still the best QB for our team but I was getting sick of it.. I'm not gonna say Rodgers will be better seeing as Brett had a great season last year..

Im getting tired of turning on ESPN everyday and seeing Favre. Stay retired, no one wants you. Its getting ridiculous already.

Now it appears he doesn't want an open competition.

In the end, it would make everybody happy if he would just stay retired.

Nobody, including Brett, wants him to be in any other uniform than the Packers.
