When Brett Favre was the star quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, he was considered one of the toughest quarterbacks in the NFL. When Favre left Green Bay, Favre developed a reputation as someone who didn't know when to quit. With that in mind, a recent ESPN report indicates that Brett is thinking of returning to the NFL again - and maybe even to his beloved Packers. However, this return would be in management.

Brett Favre: The Player

Brett Favre was actually drafted by the Atlanta Falcons but they traded the young quarterback to the Green Bay Packers, where he became a star.

From 1992 through 2007, Favre was a superstar in Green Bay. He played in two Super Bowls, winning the championship in 1997 when his Packers beat the New England Patriots.

When the Green Bay Packers moved on to Aaron Rodgers in 2008, Brett Favre moved on to the New York Jets for one season. He then returned and played for the Packers' NFC North rivals, the Minnesota Vikings and wrapped up his career in 2010. Each season, from the last few years in Green Bay to his last year in Minnesota, Favre always hinted returning and avoided retirement.

By the time he retired, Brett Favre was an 11-time Pro Bowl player, a three-time NFL MVP, and. at the time of his retirement, Brett held the records for passing yards, passing touchdowns, and interceptions thrown.

Peyton Manning has since broken the yards nad touchdown marks. Favre entered the NFL Hall of Fame in 2016.

Favre still teasing a return

When news breaks that Brett Favre is thinking of a return to the NFL, the old jokes pop back into memory. However, this time around, Favre is looking at doing something like John Elway, who became the President of the Denver Broncos.

He also said that might consider coaching, and to never say never about a return in that capacity to the Green Bay Packers.

Brett Favre is only 47 but reports over the years indicate that he has started to suffer from memory issues due to numerous concussions suffered while playing for the Green Bay Packers. That might cause some problems for the legendary Packers quarterback when it comes to a front office job like Elway but not so much for coaching players.

Favre has coached before, working with a high school football team in Mississippi, but he said that he had no thoughts of doing it in the NFL at that time. However, after the experience coaching high school players, Brett Favre said that he realized he has the effort and the drive for that aspect of the game.

Green Bay Packers legend Bart Starr became a coach after his NFL career ended. Now, it sounds like Brett Favre might be the next to consider hitting the sidelines once again, this time to help bring along young players in the future.
