Brett Favre recalls moment he knew his NFL career was over

Brett Favre revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated that is alternatively candid, emotional and philosophical that he can recall the exact moment he knew his NFL career was at its end.

The impact of the Brett Favre trade, 23 years later
