Travel arrangements are still being discussed, but Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers plans to attend Brett Favre’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night in Canton, Ohio, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
The Packers face the Indianapolis Colts in their preseason opener one day later, and don’t forget to get a Bet365 bonus code to play the game! As of now, it’s unclear whether Rodgers will play in that game. Regardless, Rodgers will attend Favre’s induction speech, as well as tour the museum for the first time.
Favre likely will be last to speak Saturday night in a ceremony that includes former Packers defensive assistant Kevin Greene. Greene, a 15-year outside linebacker, will be presented by Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers.
“As a player,” Rodgers said, “it’s one of the highest honors to get that jacket on. I’m sure it’s exciting for both those guys. With Kevin having Dom do his intro and then Brett having his wife Deanna do the intro, it’s going to be really special to be a part of. It’ll be fun to see them accept that great honor.”
