Brett Favre is one of the finest quarterbacks in NFL history, but what is his current net worth in 2022, over 10 years after he retired? What is he up to these days?
A second round pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 1991, Favre was traded across to the Green Bay Packers in 1992.
It would be a Lambeau Field that he would cement his legacy as an NFL great.
In 16 seasons at Lambeau, Favre won Super Bowl XXXI in 1997, and became a regular fixture in the Pro Bowl, appearing eight times while at the Packers.
He also holds the record for the longest touchdown pass, at 99 yards and most consecutive starts at 297.
Favre was routinely one of the highest paid NFL players during his playing career, but what is his current net worth in 2022?
What is he up to these days?
Brett Favre net worth revealed
Favre’s first contract at Green Bay was worth $19 million over three years, increasing to $47 million when he inked an extension.
In 2001 however, he received a monster pay boost.
He signed a 10-year deal worth $101.5 million taking him up to 2010.
Favre left Lambeau in 2008 for stints at the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.
It was at the Vikings he received his single-highest yearly salary – with $12 million in basic pay alone.
In total, his estimated career earnings just from football alone are around $137 million.
That, coupled with his extensive sponsorship portfolio mean Brett Favre’s current net worth in 2022 is believed to be around $100 million.
What’s he up to these days?
After leaving Green Bay, and allowing one A.Rodgers to take over the QB slot and the final swansong with the Jets and Vikings, Favre retired in 2010.
As a QB, Favre took a lot of heavy hits, often playing on with concussion.
This, in part ended his career against the Bears in December 2010 after a heavy knock.
In 2016, he was enrolled in the Pro Football Hall of Fame – and his #4 jersey at the Packers was retired.
Since then, Favre has dabbled briefly in broadcasting, including for Super Bowl XLVII in 2012.
However, he opted not to follow a career in broadcasting.
Other than maintaining his sponsor links, Favre now enjoys his retirement with wife Deanna – who he married in 1996.
