Brett Favre sounded like a man willing to mend fences with the Green Bay Packers during his interview with a Buffalo radio station on Thursday (http://pck.rs/13quCMC).

The man who took over for Favre as the Packers' starting quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, would like to see Favre and the Packers organization back on good terms.

Rodgers said this week that he has been texting with Favre since the two appeared at an NFL Honors show at the Super Bowl in February.

Rodgers said he doesn't see his role as a mediator between Favre and the Packers, but he would like to see the two sides patch things up and the organization retire Favre's No. 4.

"I know the team has desire for that to happen," Rodgers said.

According to Rodgers, his appearance at the NFL Honors show with Favre "was a way to show the team and our fans that Im on board.

"I have zero insecurities about this. Im very confident in what weve been able to accomplish. Im very respectful of what him and his teammates were able to accomplish as well.

"So I think it would be great for the organization, for our fans, for the healing process to come together, especially before he goes into Canton which is going to be coming up here in a couple years."
