The Packers struck green and gold when they traded a first-round draft pick to Atlanta for Brett Favre, who was never going to get a real chance with the Falcons. Green Bay, however, landed their quarterback of the future in a player who would take the helm for 16 seasons there.
An exciting, gunslinging quarterback, Favre won three consecutive AP MVP awards, leading the league in passing yards twice and passing touchdowns on four occasions while playing every game from September 20, 1992 to January 20, 2008.
When Green Bay moved on to Aaron Rodgers, Favre spent one year with the Jets before joining Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings in what felt like could have been a magical season in 2009 but came up short in the playoffs.
Favre retired on January 17, 2011 leaving behind a legacy including 11 Pro Bowl nods, six All-Pro honors, four Offensive Player of the Year awards, induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, making the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team, and having his number 4 jersey retired by Green Bay.
