Brett Favre is the latest ex-NFL star to endorse a presidential candidate, announcing Friday morning that he voted for Donald Trump. In the days leading up to the Nov. 3 election, several prominent former athletes have shown their support for the incumbent over Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Favre created a stir with his tweet, becoming one of the top trending topics on Twitter. The Green Bay Packers legend cited freedom of speech and the Second Amendment as reasons why he’s backing Trump.

Jack Nicklaus, arguably one of the greatest professional golfers in history, expressed his support for Trump on social media Wednesday. Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who became a reality-TV star in retirement, echoed Nicklaus’ sentiments and indicated he’d be voting for Trump as well.

Mike Ditka has long expressed his support for Trump. The Hall of Fame head coach even appeared on “Triggered” with Donald Trump Jr. this summer.

But not all pro athletes are pro-Trump.

The head coach who led Favre to his only Super Bowl championship announced he was voting for Biden in September. Mike Holmgren spoke during a virtual news conference with Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich in support of Biden and criticized Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nnamdi Asomugha, who made the Pro Bowl as a cornerback each year from 2008-2010, has spent time on the Biden campaign trail. Asomugha and his wife, actress Kerry Washington, have made public appearances in swing states, encouraging voters to cast their ballots early for Biden.

Active NFL players have not been very vocal about which candidate they will be voting for in the presidential election. However, the league launched a non-partisan campaign in August, encouraging players and fans to vote.
