Brett Favre is one of the most legendary quarterbacks in the history of the NFL. Favre was considered a gunslinger who brought an old-school mentality to a quickly-evolving league. It appears, he will be soon making a transition from gun slinging in a helmet to word-spewing in a headset.
TMZ Sports reported that Brett is starting to open up to the idea of joining a big network to broadcast and analyze NFL games. The 52-year-old Green Bay Packers said, “I would consider it,” while speaking on the subject. It goes without saying that the offer would have to be just right to get him to take the job.
Favre said he’s looking for a “great deal” and perhaps a Monday night or Thursday night broadcasting gig. He joked, though, that the nation would have to get used to his “country accent” and “aw-shucks mentality.”
As for Tom Brady, another quarterback legend who’s already committed to broadcasting games in the future, Favre said he’s not surprised at all. Brady received a $375 million deal to talk football on television. Favre asserted that “If anybody’s worth it, it’s Tom Brady.”
This comes after Favre was named in a $8 million welfare scam in Mississippi. The former NFL superstar was ordered to pay $600,000 that he owes to the state of Mississippi. Favre has previously denied knowing about the misappropriation of cash. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
