Ripped, relaxed and covered in beard, Brett Favre breaks down the NFL Draft

Brett Favre has been hitting the weight room and eschewing the razor.

That much is evident from the 1 minute, 50 second video that the 44-year-old former pro quarterback posted to the athlete website this week.

In the short clip, a Zen-like and heavily bearded Favre breaks down — you guessed it — the top of the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday night in New York City.

He talks almost too calmly in the video, given the fact that his sleeveless shirt shows off guns so ripped that he must’ve just sprinted in from the weight room.

Anyway, Favre seems to like Johnny Manziel a bunch (does he see a bit of the younger Brett in the Aggies’ gunslinger?) and talks about other draft stuff, too.
