Jerry Glanville, the Atlanta head coach, didn’t approve of drafting Brett. Whilst with the Falcons, he just had four passes; he was blocked twice and completed none of the passes.

Ron Wolf, who was an assistant to the general manager of the New York Jets at the time, had originally preferred to draft Favre in the 1991 NFL draft, however, the Falcons selected him.

Hence, in 1992, now as the general manager of the Green Bay Packers, Wolf traded a first-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons in return for Favre. He then played sixteen seasons in Green Bay and became the first and sole NFL player who won 3 back-to-back AP MVP awards.

Although, Brett and the Packer’s management apparently reached an agreement that it would be appropriate if they don’t continue together. After negotiating with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets, in August 2008, the Packers traded Favre to the Jets.

In spite of an amazing beginning with the Jets, in the last 5 games of the season, they were beaten in four of them, and in those 5 games, he threw 8 interceptions. He also went through a torn biceps tendon.

Later, he formally told the Jets about his retirement from the NFL following eighteen seasons playing professionally in the league.

Although, yet again he returned to the game following he announced his retirement, in August 2009, when he signed with the Minnesota Vikings after an offseason. He managed to perform well with the Vikings, heading them to a 12-4 end, and he also exceeded the passing yards record that Joe Montana had set earlier.

In his second season with the Jets, he endured many more injuries, along with a concussion and sprained shoulder, and in January 2011, he formally submitted his retirement papers with the NFL. He completed with NFL records in passing (71,838) and touchdowns (508).
