Aaron Rodgers Talks Andrew Luck On ESPN Milwaukee

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went on ESPN Milwaukee with Jason Wilde on Wednesday, and had some interesting things to say about fromer Stanford Cardinal quarterback and No. 1 NFL Draft prospect Andrew Luck.

Make the jump to see for yourself.

Here, Rodgers was asked about the possibility of mentoring Luck if he goes to the Colts and they keep Peyton Manning:

If the Colts draft Andrew Luck and keep Peyton Manning, would you talk to Luck about being behind a legend on the depth chart?:

"It is a similar situation (to mine with Brett Favre). Obviously it has different components. I do think part of your legacy as a quarterback is how you bring up the next generation of quarterbacks. And I would be more than willing to talk with him as I have talked with some other young quarterbacks in the past. That being said, I think that the parties, let me just say all three parties, including (Colts owner) Jim Irsay, the Mannings - which includes Archie and Peyton - and Andrew Luck, would do a lot of good for the situation by not talking about it as much as there has been. Andrew first and foremost not having been picked yet, although most people assume he is going to go number one. I think it would do him a lot of good for him to have a less-is-more strategy when it comes to talking about the potential situation in Indy."

Spoken like a true pro. Don't overcook any idea, just take it as it comes along. Luck could certain leran some things from Mr. Rodgers.
