16. Brett Favre
For a while, Favre seemed to blossom out of spite. Initially, it looked like he retired at the perfect time. The decline had yet to set in and he was a hero in the eyes of Packers’ fans. However, then he decided he wanted back in but Green Bay already dumped him for Aaron Rodgers.
He was excellent for a couple of seasons. After a spell with the Jets, he almost took Minnesota to the Super Bowl. But then he endured a few too many hits that took their toll on his aging body. Next, the interceptions increased and Favre’s career ended after a savage sack in his final game.
