With television networks shelling out big bucks for NFL broadcasters, most notably FOX giving Tom Brady a massive 10-year, $375 million contract once he retires, Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre may want to throw his hat into the ring to get in on the action.
During an interview with TMZ, Favre said he would consider a career in front of the camera but only if the "right deal" came along.
"If someone offered me a job to do Monday night or Thursday Night football, and it would be a good deal, I would consider it," Favre said, adding that it's not on his bucket list of things to accomplish.
The Packers legend actually did have a short-lived broadcasting career as a color commentator for a game between his alma mater Southern Mississippi and Rice back in 2011. According to PFT's Mike Florio, the reviews on Favre's performance for that game were not so good.
In 2018, he reportedly bombed an audition for Monday Night Football, which Favre later disputed as false.
The 55-year-old could certainly use a deal like Tom Brady's contract with FOX right now as he's currently facing a lawsuit in the state of Mississippi over the misuse of welfare funds. He owes that state $200,000 in interest after Favre was paid for alleged no-show promotional appearances.
