Shutdown Corner - NFL

Brett Favre is a grandfather.

You're probably reacting to this news one of two ways. If you're a lover of the veteran quarterback, it will likely serve as another bit of ammunition for your gunslinger-defending ways. ("The man is the Ponce de Leon of the NFL!") If you're a Favre hater, you'll probably want to brush up on your grandpappy jokes.

The 40-year old became a grandfather on Wednesday when his 21-year old daughter, Brittany, gave birth to a baby boy. Parker Brett weighed in at seven pounds seven ounces. He immediately picked off a pass thrown by his grandfather.

Favre was 19 years old when he and his then-girlfriend (and now wife), Deanna, had their first child. He is the only known grandfather currently in the NFL.
