FOX's Matt Napolitano reports:

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had suggested that he was healthy enough to keep playing football until he is 40-years-old, something his predecessor Brett Favre knows a lot about.

The former Green Bay star discussed Rodgers' comments before an awards banquet Wednesday:

(Favre) "Why stop at 40? You know, I mean he moves around as well as anyone in the game right now. That's big."

Favre played in the NFl until he was 41.

By the way, Rodgers made those comments in regards to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady turning 40 last week.
