Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, who started his career with the Atlanta Falcons and also played for the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings, is on hand for the San Francisco 49ers' matchup against the Carolina Panthers at Levi's Stadium.

The Hall of Fame quarterback was spotted on the sidelines wearing a "National Tight End Day" t-shirt before kickoff.

Favre, who played college football at Southern Miss, spoke with 49ers backup quarterback Nick Mullens before the game. Mullens also played for the Golden Eagles.

Here is Favre earlier with the 49ers' Pro Bowl tight end, George Kittle.
