Baker Mayfield recreates famous Brett Favre picture

Baker Mayfield recreates famous Brett Favre picture

Mayfield's tweet was complete with a Favre quote, and the photo was nearly an exact replica of the one the Packers great and ex-Jets QB took 27 years ago.

At first, you may notice the simplicity of Mayfield copying Favre's outfit and pose with an old-school phone in his hand.

That's a lot to get ready for but Mayfield seems to be well-prepared for his big day.

The Favre photo, which showed him receiving the call from the Falcons during the 1991 draft, has become famous largely because of Favre's now out-of-fashion jean shorts (or jorts).


"There are those people who are in your corner no matter what, you can't do any wrong, even when you do wrong". In fact, Favre's first-ever National Football League pass was a pick-six, the next two were incompletions, and his fourth attempt was also an interception.

But on the eve of the draft, Mayfield took to Twitter to pay homage to one of the great quarterbacks who dominated the game before him: Brett Favre.

Most of the pre-draft talk had been centered around the Browns deciding between USC's Sam Darnold and Wyoming's Josh Allen for their first of two top-five picks, but ESPN's Adam Schefter noted this morning the Oklahoma star is firmly in the running, too.

"I just said "I gotta go" and then I hung up. And then there are those people that no matter what you do they're going to dislike you and that's not going to change". The first round of the NFL Draft is set for Thursday night.
