Mayfield recreates Favre’s 1991 draft-day photo

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield decided to channel early ’90s Brett Favre on the eve of the NFL draft.

The Heisman Trophy winner recreated a well-known photo that showed the Hall of Fame quarterback in his bedroom at his parents’ Mississippi home receiving a call from the Atlanta Falcons after being picked in the second round of the 1991 NFL draft.

The photo Mayfield tweeted out Wednesday night saw him wearing jean shorts like Favre did and similarly reclining on a bed in a small bedroom with a bulky old-school phone to his ear while family and friends filled the space around him.

Mayfield, who is reportedly being considered by the Cleveland Browns with the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday’s draft, also got a tweet back from Favre.

“Good luck tonight,” Favre tweeted Thursday morning, “and remember to send my Jorts back tomorrow.”
