Brett Favre is a 3-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and unsolicited dick pic sender. It’s no secret that Favre was a gun slinger who read the playbook as thoroughly as you and I read the Terms and Conditions before making an online purchase.

God, Aaron Rodgers must’ve wanted to murder Favre during his years as backup.
