Brett Favre is a former American professional football player who was a quarterback in the National Football League (NFL), playing the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers. In his 20-year career, he played quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons in 1991, the Packers from 1992 to 2007, the New York Jets in 2008, and the Minnesota Vikings from 2009 to 2010. Favre was the first NFL quarterback to pass for 500 touchdowns, throw for 70,000 yards, attempt 10,000 passes, completing 6,000 passes of his attempts.
Favre played college football for the University of Southern Mississippi for four years, setting many school records. Following his college career, Favre was selected in the second round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons, with whom he spent one season as a backup before being traded to Green Bay for the Packers' first-round pick in the 1992 NFL Draft. In 1992, Favre became the Packers' starting quarterback and started every game through the 2007 season. He played for the Packers for 16 years before being traded to the Jets for the 2008 season and spending his final two seasons with the Vikings. Demonstrating his stamina and consistency, Favre made an NFL-record 297 consecutive starts in the regular season, and 321 starts including the playoffs.
Favre's 11 Pro Bowl invitations is the third most among quarterbacks in NFL history. He is the only player to win the Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player Award three consecutive times, doing so from 1995 to 1997, and is one of only six quarterbacks to have won the award as well as the Super Bowl in the same season. He led teams to eight division championships, five NFC Championship Games, and two Super Bowl appearances: Super Bowl XXXI and Super Bowl XXXII. He and the Packers won Super Bowl XXXI over the New England Patriots.
Favre holds many NFL records, including most career pass attempts, most career interceptions thrown, most consecutive starts by a player, most times sacked, and most fumbles.
At the time of his retirement, he was the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns and quarterback wins; with all three records having since been broken. Favre was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016 and had his number retired by the Green Bay Packers in 2015.
Since ending his playing days, Brett has retired to his home state of Mississippi, where he lives with his wife Deanna overseeing his foundation Favre 4 Hope which serves underprivileged children in Mississippi and Wisconsin. Brett also works with Prevacus Inc. to prevent and treat concussions. Brett enjoys hunting, golf, and spending time with his two daughters and grandchildren.
