American Football player Brett Favre, was born on 10 October 1969, in Gulfport, Mississippi, of part French and American Native Choctaw descent. He played in the crucial position of quarterback, with most of his professional career spent in the Green Bay Packers National Football League(NFL) team. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets and finished his career in Minnesota with the Vikings. He is also an actor, and sometime coach and analyst.
A famous former professional NFL player, just how rich is Brett Favre? As of mid-2017, Brett’s net worth is estimated by authoritative sources to be over $110 million, accumulated largely during a career in football which spanned 1991 until 2010. Favre’s salary grew steadily from 2000, when he received $450,000 with a three million dollar bonus, up to 2008, when he accumulated $12 million from the New York Jets after he was traded, and finally with the Vikings he added a $25 million contract in 2009, and a year later $12 million with an additional sum of $16 million from a reconstructed contract with them.
Brett Lorenzo Favre studied at Hancock North Central High School, where his passion for American Football started, yet most of his focus at the time was directed towards baseball. When Favre matriculated from high school, he continued his studies at the University of Southern Mississippi on a football scholarship, his college career marked by setting several university records, including five 300-yard games, and being the seasonal leader in total passing and total offense in all four of his seasons at Southern Miss. However, it wasn’t until he launched his professional football career that he became a well-known athlete in the US.
Brett Favre was chosen by the Atlanta Falcons as the 33rd pick in the NFL Draft in 1991, however, the Falcons coach did not approve of Favre being on the team, so he was traded to the Green Bay Packers, who had wanted him anyway. Favre joined the team in 1992 and subsequently made a name for himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. The Packers with Favre won the Super Bowl in 1997 against the New England Patriots, and during his fifteen years with the team he reached many personal milestones. Often referred to as “The Gunslinger”, some of Favre’s professional achievements included the Super Bowl; becoming a two-time NFC Champion, making it to the Pro Bowl all-star game eleven times, as well as being a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player. In addition to that, Brett Favre’s NFL career is highlighted by many league records, such as the most career pass attempts, most career victories as a starting quarterback, and most consecutive starts by a quarterback, to name just a few.
When Favre retired from professional football, he went on to work as an analyst for the University of Southern Mississippi, coached high school, made a couple of cameo appearances in films, including with Cameron Diaz in “There’s Something About Mary” , plus the family own Brett Favre’s Steakhouse in Green Bay.
In his personal life, Brett Favre has been married to Deanna since 1996, and they have two daughters. Brett is a philanthropist too, creating the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation in 1996, holding an annual golf tournament, fundraising dinners, and a celebrity softball game, donating the proceeds to various charities in Mississippi and Wisconsin.
