Brett Favre’s former teammate LeRoy Butler says he just assumes that Favre will play in 2010, because Favre can’t do anything other than play football.
And Butler told fellow former NFL player Tom Waddle in a radio interview in Chicago today that he pities Favre for his inability to find something else to do with his life.
“I actually feel sorry for the guy because he can’t do like we do,” Butler said. “I’ve always said, from the day when he cried in front of the media in Wisconsin and retired, the guy is a football player. He’s not good at anything else.”
Butler, a defensive back who was Favre’s teammate in Green Bay from 1992 to 2001, said he thinks Favre is a great player, and that if Favre returns the Vikings should be considered the favorites in the NFC North. And he says Favre will return to the Vikings, because Favre can’t imagine a life without football.
“He’s a football player,” Butler said. “That’s the only thing he wants to do and he’s going to continue to do that.”
