If there's a quarterback record to be broken, there's a good chance Brett Favre broke it at some point. The Green Bay Packers legend, who ended his career with the Minnesota Vikings, retired as the all-time passing leader in touchdowns, yards, completions, interceptions, starts, etc. Favre played college ball at Southern Miss, setting multiple school records despite a near fatal car accident his senior season. He was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 1991. Riding the bench and seeing little playing time, he was traded to the Packers the following season. A Super Bowl victory and three MVPs later, Favre will go down as one of the greatest pro sports athletes ever.
Brett Lorenzo Favre (born October 10, 1969) is a former American football quarterback who spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL).
