Many pegged Brett Favre as a future coach when he finally retired from the NFL in 2010. So far those projections have panned out, as the former gunslinger has helped to lead a Mississippi high school team to a state title as its offensive coordinator. Many are now wondering what’s next for the iconic quarterback?

Well, it appears he’s taking his talents to the world of politics:

That’s right, Brett Favre approves this message.

Is anyone really surprised by this? I know I’m not. Favre doesn’t come across as a guy who’s afraid to try new things, or as a guy who would take a paycheck to promote something he might be somewhat interested in. Either way, he’s now talking Mississippi politics from the back of a Gator, gas can and all…

As far as Favre and the NFL are concerned, many fans are waiting for him to make his return to the Green Bay Packers. He recently came out and said that it will only be a matter of time before the long-awaited reunion happens. The two sides have needed to bury the hatchet for years now, and the longer it draws on without some sort of resolution, the worse off both parties will be.

Favre is a Hall-of-Famer, and most certainly and Packers Hall-of-Famer. His No. 4 needs to be on display at Lambeau Field for fans young and old to see. Like him or not, he brought the storied franchise back to relevancy in the 1990s with his MVP-level play.
