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.
