BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Retired quarterback Brett Favre is taking some of the blame for his ugly departure from the Green Bay Packers.

Favre told WGR 550-AM in Buffalo on Thursday that he was “at fault” in the breakup, though he says he feels like “both sides had a part in it.”

Favre also says he has patched up things with Aaron Rodgers. After Rodgers arrived at Green Bay, Favre flirted every offseason with retirement but always came back. In 2008, Favre retired, changed his mind and asked for his job back, but Favre was traded to the New York Jets during training camp.

Favre retired from the Jets in 2009 before deciding on a return with Minnesota Vikings. The three-time MVP retired from the National Football League in 2010 after playing for 20 seasons, throwing for 71,838 yards and 508 touchdowns.
