According to Michael Hiestand, USA TODAY Sports:

Brett Favre joins NFL Network for Super Bowl XLVII coverage.

Brett Favre, once thought of as a likely star NFL TV analyst, will get a big on-air audition Sunday before Super Bowl XLVII is played between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans.

Says NFLN executive producer Eric Weinberger: “We’ve been trying to get Brett into our shows for awhile. We’re thrilled he’s ready to do it.”

On whether NFLN would like to add Favre on-air permanently, Weinberger says, “We’d love to get Brett’s perspective as often as we can. But we’re taking this one show at a time.”
