A few weeks ago, former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, who recently signed a very large deal with the rival Minnesota Vikings made waves when he suggested he’d take Brett Favre over “that guy they have over there now” – that guy being Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
And while he might be correct, it was clearly a (small) shot at Rodgers who earlier, when asked a question about Jennings replied with a “who” answer.
The two sides have calmed on their insults and it appears Jennings is extending the olive branch, calling their mini-feud nothing more than jokes.
I have no ill feelings for anyone over there (in Green Bay, and that includes quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whom he did not identify by name in a recent Pioneer Press story). We’re just back and forth. He jokes. I joke.
The lighthearted jabs from both sides seemed to have little seriousness in them, but just in case anybody was wondering, Jennings wanted to settle the record.
