Green Bay Packers icon Aaron Rodgers is preparing to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday, pitting him against a familiar face in Darrell Bevell. While speaking about his upcoming tilt against Bevell and the Lions, Rodgers revealed that Bevell used to task him with finding Brett Favre.

“A lot of my time was spent walking around looking for Favrey,” Rodgers recalled Wednesday, via ESPN's Rob Demovsky. “That was one of the my responsibilities as a rookie was trying to figure out where Favrey was at sometimes and head into the back to see where he was he was hanging out and say, ‘Hey, coach Bevell wants you.'”

When Rodgers was a rookie with the Packers back in 2005, he was the backup to Favre. At the same time, Bevell — who is serving as the interim head coach of the Lions right now — was the quarterbacks coach in Green Bay in 2005.

Therefore, Bevell would task Rodgers with seeking out Favre when the coach wanted to speak with him. Bevell would depart from the Packers after the 2005 season, spending time with the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, and the Lions since his time in Green Bay.

On the other hand, Rodgers has become one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history after replacing Favre under center. Rodgers is hot on Patrick Mahomes' trail for the NFL's MVP award this season, throwing for 3,395 yards, 36 touchdowns, and only four interceptions through the first 13 weeks of the season.

There's a good chance that Rodgers will make some time to speak to Bevell before the game between the Packers and the Lions on Sunday. At the same time, Rodgers is hoping to continue his quest for another MVP by laying waste to Bevell's squad.
