Brett Favre may have retired from the NFL, but the football star is still making waves with his new beard this week.

The retired quarterback attended the GoDaddy.com Bowl luncheon where he served as a guest speaker on Friday, debuting his long stubble.

Photos of Favre from the luncheon made their way to social media, and many users voiced their reactions to the three-time NFL MVP player's appearance.

"Gotta love @Favre4Official for being himself," Twitter user Mark posted. "The grizzly beard looking good enjoyed watching him play."

Di wrote, "Brett's Favre's beard though. Clearly Favre is trying to land a role on Duck Dynasty with that thing."

"Brett Favre still sporting the lumberjack beard," Terez added.

GoDaddy Bowl luncheon attendee David Brandt shared a photo of Favre onTwitter, writing, "Brett Favre is the keynote speaker today at the GoDaddy luncheon, that beard is looking fierce."

During his speech at the GoDaddy event, Favre told the audience in Mobile, Alabama to enjoy the experience of being on a football team, according to AlabamaSports.com.

About 1,400 people attended the annual event at the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center. It was Favre's first public engagement since leading his prep school football team to a state championship.

Meanwhile, Favre spent most of his career with the Green Bay Packers, but he was also a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings. He is a 20-year veteran of the NFL.

Favre became the first and only quarterback in NFL history to throw over 70,000 yards, over 500 touchdowns, over 300 interceptions, over 6,000 completions and over 10,000 pass attempts.

Today, Favre is the defensive coordinator for the football team at Oak Grove High School. He is also busy with his family that includes a grandson.
