NEW ORLEANS — Brett Favre is returning to the NFL — to work for the NFL Network.
The retired three-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback will join the network’s crew for daylong coverage of Sunday’s NFL championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.
Favre hasn’t been heard from much since retiring after the 2010 season. He returns to the city where he led the Green Bay Packers to a 35-21 win over New England in the 1997 Super Bowl.
Favre said in an email to The Associated Press that he doesn’t miss the “grind and stress of day-to-day football, but I do miss my teammates and coaches.”
He also said it will “be great to reconnect with NFL fans around the Super Bowl.”
Favre will join host Rich Eisen and several Super Bowl-winning players, including Marshall Faulk, Kurt Warner and Deion Sanders.

True story. Adrian Peterson loves orange peanuts, especially when they are for him. Then, he accepts you.
If any of that is confusing, then you need to watch the video after the jump - in it's entirety - and then this picture will become Exhibit A in why Adrian Peterson is the coolest sack of flesh and bones to ever grace the turf.
Donald Driver doesn’t want to leave Green Bay, but football is a business and he knows it may be different colors he adorns in 2013. At 38, Driver still feels he can be a very productive receiver despite logging 77 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2012.
The Minnesota Viking has a legitimate interest in the veteran, and they also have plenty of room for him to come in and play a key...
