Pro Football Hall Famer Brett Favre shared his thoughts on Deshaun Watson requesting a trade from the Houston Texans.

“You get paid a ton of money to do a certain job, and just do it, and let the chips fall where they may,” Favre said.

In interview with Yahoo Sports made a disturbing comment like Fox News host Laura Ingraham told LeBron James “to shut up and dribble.”

“I think we make too much money to voice an opinion, but I’m not saying he’s wrong. Again I think it’s a different day and time, and it’ll be interesting to see how the organization handles it.”

Watson’s agent David Mulugheta saw Favre’s comments and took up for his star quarterback on social media.

“Brett should probably stop throwing stones from that glass house he’s sitting in,” he tweeted.

Mulugheta could be referencing how Favre forced his way out of Green Bay after infamously retiring — and then unretiring — following the end of the 2007 season.

In the Spring of 2008, Favre stated that he had been willing to play another year, he felt that another season would only be successful if he led his team to another Super Bowl victory. He added the chances for a Super Bowl win were small, and that he was not up for the challenge. At his press conference, Favre openly wept about leaving the NFL. He stated that his decision, regardless of what was being said in the media, had nothing to do with what the Packers did or didn’t do.

Summer of 2008, Favre sent a letter to the Packers asking for his unconditional release to allow him to play for another NFL team. Packers general manager Ted Thompson announced he would not grant Favre an unconditional release and reaffirmed the organization’s commitment to Aaron Rodgers as its new quarterback. Complicating matters was Favre’s unique contract giving him the leverage to void any potential trade by not reporting to the camp of the team he might be traded to if the Packers elect to go that route.

Favre disputed the notion that he does not want to play for Green Bay and said that while he understands the organization has decided to move on, they should now allow him to do the same. He made clear that he would not return to the Packers as a backup and reiterated his desire to be released rather than traded, which would allow him the freedom to play for a competitive team. Favre also accused the Packers of being dishonest, wishing the team would have been straightforward with him and the public.

This sounds like Favre is being little hypocritical when it comes Deshaun Watson situation.

Many others from the sports media world commented on Favre comments.
